  It's Still Blowing
Yep, that's right, it is still blowing in Corpus Christi and Portland, TX.  Texas has had an extremely dry year and while there is not too much good to come from it, this has generated some extremely consistent winds in the 15 to 20mph+ range just about every day.  The wind is so good this time of year some instructors have ridden over 90 days in a row (they lost count after that!).
For anyone that has never been in town we have riding spots just a 1/2 hour away from the airport and plenty of reasonably priced accommadations just minutes away from some unbelievable riding spots.  

To help everyone get off to a good start we are now offering one-on-one private 3-hour lessons for free with the purchase of any 2012 or 2011 package deal.  This is a full on lesson that takes you through all of the basics both on land and out in the water including getting up and riding on your board. Our lesson location has a waist deep, sandy bottom and is incredibly uncrowded. 

*Note: Custom packages are available, just give us a call at 361. 883. 1473 or email 
Offer only available on non-discounted packages. Package must include 2011/2012 kite, board, harness.


The Hulk was just sponsored by Crazyfly!!!  Just kidding.  Jeff does give a great explanation of how to jump higher using a Hulk figurine and paper kiteboard.  If you are struggling to get as high as you want this short video will show you how to progress and ride how you want too.
