South Padre Island Watersports
South Padre Island Watersports started in 2003, as a school dedicated to kiteboarding—a sport much like wakeboarding, except without the boat. Instead, the boarder gets pulled by a kite, powered by the breeze. At South Padre, this all takes place on the pristine Laguna Madre Bay.

“Nice people. Great instructor. ”
