Prokite offers a premium kiteboarding experience to our clients. Our lesson program is set up at the waters edge on the SPI Convention Center Beach, located just North of the SPI Convention Center. It is the closest flatwater access beach to town, a wide open space with lots of easy parking and a great place to kite. Stop by any windy day and we will be there, the PROKITE lesson van is easy to spot.

It was my first time kiting anywhere and, on the advice of a friend, I went down to South Padre and got a set of lessons from Brett. I was not disappointed. Starting on the beach learning kite skills and then progressively and logically moving to water lessons and board lessons, I was up on my second day. I was... More

Brett of ProKite SPI is an awesome resource to rely on, whether you're looking to learn or already kiting. He really knows kiting through and through, and the rates are extremely reasonable. I came to SPI with some previous kite experience, and Brett patiently explained some new techniques as well as conditions and spots to check out. Don't pass up... More

My first visit to South Padre was at the recommendation of a friend, who referred me specifically to Bret and Prokite for my initial introduction to kite boarding. As I only had a few days for my first trip, I wanted to learn as much as possible, as quickly as possible. Brett was extremely accommodating, and despite less than favorable... More

We have taken lessons elsewhere, but were not ready to go it alone. Laguna Madre in SPI is a great place to learn! It makes a huge difference when you are a novice to be able to stand up on the bottom and regroup, and the warm water helps. The wind was steady. The instruction however made it worth the... More

What an incredible experience. I had never kited before, and although the prospect of holding a sizable kite up in the air can be a bit daunting, Brett flawlessly guided me and another friend through the process. It is an exhilarating experience to have the kite lift you up out of the water for your first ride! I particularly liked... More

I took beginner lessons with Brett in Aug/Sept 2014 in the Hood River, Oregon area. We did three lessons in Stevenson and one in Lyle. My first three lessons were shared with my friend, neither of us had any experience. For the ground portion and body drags, group lesson was okay. Once you are in the water, I prefer the... More

Brett is an excellent teacher-super nice, knowlegable, professional. Using the jet ski to assist and the headphones in the helmet for instruction, it is impossible not to progress. He knows just what to say when you need help. I am so glad I went to Prokite for instruction. Now I need Brett's expertise to help me ride the Gorge!

Brett's a very good instructor and a nice guy. Only downsides: lessons with Prokite are expensive and I was disappointed that after he said he would email me photo samples of my riding position and I gave him my email address multiple times he never did so ...

Thanks for coming out with us Maine, I am glad you had a good session. I would like to note that PROKITE does currently offer the lowest rate on South Padre Island for private kiteboarding lesson sessions, as well as the lowest minimum hourly commitment at 2 hrs per session in an effort to accommodate clients on a budget.

Brett and Mary are excellent instructors that get you up and riding quickly! They really know how to give you just the right instruction to learn more quickly. With the jetski and the headphone communication it is like having them right at your side the whole time.
