The South Padre Island Kite Retreat

I am stoked for this Fall/Winter season! This will be our first trip to the kiteboarding mecca of South Padre Island. We wanted to go to a place where you can find the most consistent winds and easy conditions to perfect your skills. 

Surprisingly, Texas is the spot for this. For the months of October through March, you can find some of the best kiteboarding conditions in SPI. 

The town of South Padre Island is on a barrier island. This means… sweet shallow, butter-flat, waist-deep water in the Laguna Madre Bay, and ocean waves on the opposite side to challenge your skills. These conditions combined with the strong consistent winds for the months of October through March… equals some of the best kiteboarding adventures!
