About Us

I’m Tracy Villarreal, the guy behind Active At The Beach and I’m in charge of all content, editing and keeping the website up and running.

I was born and raised on the Texas coast. I enjoy fishing from boats, kayaks, piers and shorelines for a variety of fish species such as redfish, bass, trout, flounder and big drum (like you see here).

I got my start in the great sport of fishing when Dad would take us fishing with him all around Padre Island or Corpus Christi Bay.

beach camping tips

My love for the outdoors grew from an early age, whether it’s surfing, beach running, 4-wheeling, and beach camping in Texas’ beautiful beaches or dirt biking across rural South Texas.

I’m an IT professional by trade with over 30 years experience at some well-known companies in oil and gas, telecommunications and computer-related manufacturers.

Water and beach activities are my real passions. I will continue trying various products, accessories and techniques in an effort to provide honest reviews and provide great information.
