Salty Culture Launches Guide Service In True Island Style
When a fishing charter launches with a fresh haul of fish from several trips of limiting out, live music, and local artist, you know they are out to make a lasting impression. However, for Salty Culture the impression is about more than just the business, it’s about the local impact that can be made because of it.
Salty Culture will be cutting their ribbon on July 16th at 6pm as a symbolic gesture that you are just beginning to see their presence on the island take off. From hair cuts for our less fortunate to free surf camps for the kids to remodeling buildings in disrepair, Salty Culture has already begun pouring into the island they love through acts of service.
In an effort to further their reach and expand on the projects that they can take on, Salty Culture will also be launching their new guide service with Captain Clint Shuttlesworth at the helm.
“Even beyond the funds Salty Culture can raise to invest here on Galveston island, the guide service allows our organization to directly connect with people who might not otherwise hear about us and plug them in to this community of doers.” says Cpt Clint.
That evening, in conjunction with Galveston’s beloved Art Walk, from 6-9pm at Valiant Church the guide service will officially launch and be ready to sign up charters. Join them at 2002 Post Office and see what the Salty Cat crew has to offer your friends and family!
About Salty Culture Guide Service:
Salty Culture Guide Service is a unique new charter business to Galveston Island specializing in wade fishing and drifting on Galveston Bay. Capt Clint Shuttlesworth will not only fill your stringer but he'll capture the experience as well so that you've got all the proof you need that you're not just telling fish tales!
Trips for 1 - 3 people start at just $350 and the proceeds go directly back into Salty Culture's service projects.

We will be hosting a Free Surf Camp for kids at the Galveston State Park. This is something you don't want to miss. Its So awesome to see kids catch some waves for the first time. Most kids don't have a chance to experience surfing so we want to be able to provide that for them.
ADOPT – A – BEACH SPRING CLEANUP - TEXAS GENERAL LAND OFFICE
Clean Galveston is an all volunteer organization that manages the Adopt-A-Beach cleanup for the GLO. Volunteers can sign up online at www.texasadoptabeach.org or just show up at Menard Park at 8:30 for registration and the cleanup is from 9am until noon.
Impact is defined as a change that is a result or consequence of an action or other cause. That’s what Salty Culture has set out to do, to #impactlocal through outreach that gives people a renewed hope in a way that they can continue to tap into as they walk through their story. The Salty Culture kids camp is an outreach that allows the youth of Galveston County that wouldn’t normally be able to afford surf lessons a chance to be dropped in on a few waves by some of the best local legendary surfers from Galveston Island.
The goal of the Salty Culture Kids Camp is for these young surfers to connect with their mentors as they overcome a challenge they once thought impossible, a lesson that will transcend into their every day lives when made with a lasting impact like catching your first wave!
Join us on the beach at Galveston Island State Park on Saturday April 9th, rain or shine, from 9am to 1pm. There is no fee to participate and GISP has graciously waived the park entrance fee for surf camp kids and their families. We will provide a an amazing hot of the grill lunch courtesy Classic Auto Group after a morning of surfing with our local legends. Free t-shirts will be provided for the first 35 kids courtesy of Outback T-shirt Company so get there early! Through age 12 are welcome and boards are provided, however, we do ask that all participants be strong swimmers.
Already know how to surf? We want you to join in the fun too! We will be running a mini groms heat for the first 15 to sign up and it’s beach entry only! We will have two 15 minute sessions and 1st through 3rd place will go home with plastic in hand!
Interested in getting involved or donating towards lunch? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
All parents MUST sign a release form. If you are sending your child with a friend please click here and download and print the form and send it with your little grom!
See you on the sand friends, stay salty!
This will be a great time to serve and bring your kids out as well. This project will be in April. More details to come.
Easter Sunday is one that is meant to be spent with family and friends around a table feasting on an incredible spread while celebrating the resurrecting of the Man who paid the price for us all. For some on the island, the only family they have are those who serve them through outreach. This Easter we want them to have a seat at the table with us and will be serving them an Easter spread after the 10:30am service at Valiant Church. We will have a bounce house for the kids and community inside! Feel free to bring something to contribute to the feast. Come grab a seat at table and join us, alongside the less fortunate, as we celebrate a risen King.
There is something about a hair cut that feels like a fresh start, right? On March 26th we will giving out clean cuts and fresh starts as we turn the Salty Culture Hub into a place for community, hair cuts, and breakfast! Join us and watch the transformations that happen inside and out and spend some time loving on people who truly appreciate it. If you'd like to make blessing bags please feel free and bring them in gallon ziplocs.
