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. « less

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.

Laurent visited SPI all the way from FRANCE and stayed for about 3 weeks. He was able to rent an inexpensive apartment and managed to "do SPI" without a car without much trouble. It is a relatively easy Island and Kiteboarding destination to make the most of, even on a budget. Glad you had a good time Laurent, it was... More

I did 4 days of lessons with Prokite in early March 2014. Brett runs Prokite South Padre and meets you with his van full of kites and boards at South Flats - away from the kiters who generally go to North Flats. He is a super-experienced instructor who was recommended to me by two other people who had taken lessons... More

Excellent instruction from Brett to work on my board starts, kite handling skills, and jumping technique. I would recommend both beginners and experienced riders.

Brett with Prokite is very knowledgeable, patient, well equipped, and communicates well. Having the radio equipped helmet and jetski was a huge help once I was up on the board. Brett has a great method for launching safely that makes a lot of sense and is different than other lessons I have had. Highly recommend Prokite for beginners do to... More
