Air Padre gave my Grandson a fabulous time. When there was no wind they took him flyboarding. When the wind came up, they had him up kiteboarding in three sessions ! My hat is off to Air padre.

This place was amazing. We started off paddle boarding but after about 30 minutes I no longer wanted to paddle board. We went back into the dock and with no problem whatsoever they let us switch over to a kayak. The next night we went back and jet skied. (The only place on the island where you can be 18,... More

I went to South Padre Island for another go at kiteboarding lessons. I had my doubts as I took a couple lessons before and was ready to throw in the towel! I couldn't be happier with the lessons largely due to my instructor, Petra. She was methodical in my progression, immediately identified learning gaps from previous lessons. She quickly adapted...

Flyboarding was awesome! Worth the trip to the island just to try it. Also took a kayak out while visiting. Air Padre staff is friendly and professional, and we had a great experience with them. There are lots of things to try at Air Padre if flyboarding or kayaking isn’t your thing.

Flyboarding was every bit as exciting as I was hoping it would be. It only takes a couple of minutes to get in the air and comfortable flying around. The price is fairly high, but the experience was well worth trying it out.

Just got off the water having a blast learning flyboarding basics from Jeff. The water jet power makes you feel like a superhero as you get up to 10' off the water! The experience was actually even more fun than I expected because it's a good workout for your core and legs and surprisingly even your foot muscles get involved.... More

Both Joel and Petra are very enthusiastic, patient and very good at communicating. My wife and I are impressed with their ability to teach. Having taught sailing lessons and high school for many years, I recognize when people are good at teaching. Both Joel and Petra are very good at what they do. This is not just our experience, but...

It was such an easy experience. For my birthday last year we did Stand Up Paddle boarding. It was my first time so I was kind of nervous, but it was awesome. The staff was helpful with any questions and concerns I had. Plus you literally walk right outside to where you put the board in the water. You don't... More
