Mini Kite Guide South Padre Island

April, 2013   //   by Chase Hasch   

South Padre Island Kiteboarding Quick Facts:

Wind: Best month March, April, and May. Summer can be great as well.

Water: Shorty, Boardshorts in the summer.

Spot: Side-onshore wave kiting on the ocean side. Flat water kiting on the sound side called the “flats”.

Vibe: Relaxed beginner and intermediate kite scene. Lots of parking enough space for everyone. Flat and waist deep water for miles makes this a great place to learn.

Tips: Avoid Spring Break (unless you want to do keg-stands “and” kite). Lots of choices for Hotels and Camping. Or you can park on the beach (4×4 advised) outside of town. You are not supposed too, but in the offseason no one cares.

Food: This is a tourist destination, which means lots of choices.
