As we approach one of the best times of the year to learn how to kiteboard, Air Padre has set the schedule for the fall kiteboarding camps. October through December are some of the most consistent winds on South Padre Island, as well as the warmest air and water temperatures. Fall kiteboard camps are offered to provide students with the best rates on lessons and the most continuous time in the water. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced kiteboarding camps are 12 hours long, spread over a three day period, and all kitesurfing equipment is provided. Air Padre is the only water sports lesson center on the island which utilizes full boat support combined with radio helmets for every student! Call today at 956-299-WIND(9463) to ask questions or make your reservation!
The beginner kiteboarding camp gives students the knowledge base and practice they need to become a proficient and safe kite boarder. The beginner's camp starts with the basics of kiteboarding including: equipment selection and gear set-up, safety releases, launching and landing, developing proficient kite control skills, and progresses to water starts, beginning to ride, going up wind and much more! The beginner's camp is also great for those who have taken a lesson already, and want to review the basics in addition to moving forward with their riding.
The intermediate kiteboarding camp is for kiteboarders who already know how to water start and are looking to maximize their time and progression on the water. Students will learn how to carve turns, load-and-pop, ride toe-side, smooth direction changes and more! If you have taken a few lessons prior, and are in need of more time on the water to hone your skills and become a stand out kiteboarder, then consider the intermediate riding camp.
The advanced kiteboarding camp is for intermediate kiteboarders who are looking to take their riding to the top level. Advanced camps covers: sent jumps, different board grabs, advanced kite control techniques, strapless, unhooking and more! If you are interested in getting top level riding time and instruction in a top notch location then 12 hours of the advanced camp is the way to go!
