SPI Kiteboarding & SUP, South Padre Island

Surfing / Windsurfing / Kitesurfing · Stand-Up Paddleboarding
South Padre Island Kiteboarding got its start in the spring of 2002. There were very few kiteboarders on the island back then so it was exciting to be a part of pioneering the incredible kiteboarding conditions of South Padre Island.

Now in our 12th year, our love of kiteboarding has moved us through many epic adventures. Our customers and friends have been a driving force behind our progress and vision. Throughout our 12 year history, one thing has remained constant - we are kiteboarders at heart, drawing on influences and progression from around the world.

  • Wyatt was super helpful on my recent trip to SPI! Spent a bunch of time with me on the phone before my trip and hooked my friend and I up with lessons, gear, and even recommended a local kite shop back home (SF Bay Area). He introduced my friend and I to Chad, an instructor from MN, who is there kiting/teaching April & November. Awesome guy - seek him out if you can!
  • Recently had great experience with the people in the shop--especially Scott. They were knowledgeable, passionate and--most importantly--patient. Had a great and varied demo experience then got a great deal on a 2015 Slingshot Vision. Shop is well stocked and they're real helpful.
