The surf is up, so grab your gear and let's go hang ten. A new "surf bar" is coming to Dallas in 2024, and it promises to be the hot spot to hang in the metroplex. It is being built in the historical Deep Ellum neighborhood at 317 South 2nd Avenue.

The name of the new establishment will be called Goodsurf, include a restaurant and beer garden, and feature the latest authentic surf technology.

While Goodsurf is not expected to open until the middle of 2024, The Colony is saying their city's new Fireside Surf will be open by September 2023. It too is promising to have the latest in technology to offer surfers, both beginners and professionals.

In the meantime, I plan on attending not so much for the surfing, but for the delicious foods and fun environment. Last year I discovered an incredible place known as Waco Surf, and it too has all the latest equipment to create the sorts of waves that bring the biggest challenge.

While the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is only a couple hours away from Abilene, and Waco about three, they're both a lot closer than Galveston at six hours away. By this time next year, we'll be that much nearer some incredible man-made surfs.

I imagine these new surf venues will be popular because we Texans love to stay cool. If the two videos are anything close to what is coming to the Lone Star State, these places are going to be packed.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
