Prokite delivers 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. Kiteboarding is something anyone can experience. Whether you have friends that already ride and you want to get out there with them, or if you are just curious to find out how it works and what it feels like to handle powerful kites, we can have a fun, safe, and skill building experience together. Our Lesson Services include GOPRO photo and video of your experience for you to take home, as well as radio communication and waverunner support for riding lessons. PROKITE offers New and Used gear available for sale and rental. We are always happy to answer kiteboarding related questions, give a call anytime, and see you at the BEACH!

I heard about Brett Newcomb and his kiteboarding school Prokite South Padre when I was getting my initiation into the sport back in summer of 2015 in Los Angeles. The key phrase about his teaching style was “incredibly thorough”. Turned out there was much more to it. First time I went to SPI for a brief visit in November 2015... More

I had a great experience with ProKite. Fantastic instructors, great location. I received quality one on one instruction, I liked the enphasis on safe kiting skills and practices. I would recommend ProKite to anyone looking to start into Kite Boarding or improving their skills.

Brett, Mary and Ollie are amazing instructors! Needless to say they got my son and I up and kiting. They are so cool and laid back but when it comes safety and teaching they are in the zone and completely focused on making sure you have the best experience and learn to kite safely. They never tire of answering all... More

Best place and best instructors to Kiteboard whether you're a beginner, or intermediate! Seriously super impressed with this power duo. Super nice, and awesome riders themselves. Brett explains everything in such easy terms. Very patient. The flats are the best place I've seen so far. Shallow warm waters, steady winds . . . South Padre is very affordable. Had a... More

Prokit instructor Brett was a pleasure to learn from for the week I took lessons. The combination of warm shallow water at South Flats, Brett's patient style, and his proximity on his jetski left little to be desired. Sometimes, far from shore, Brett would have me hop on the jetski, he would take my kite and board, and kite back... More

So it's like this: I decided to give kite-boarding a try some years ago and booked an Intro lesson in San Francisco; this lesson consisted of flying a trainer kite for 30 minutes with a dozen other folks followed by a hard sell on buying a trainer kite - at this point I decided that I will teach myself. Spent... More

Went out to South Padre for a week to do a bit of kiteboarding. Basically spent the whole week with Brett going out to the beach and kiting around. He is great guy to hang out with and an excellent instructor as well. During the lesson I took, he was really good on showing me how to improve my skills... More

I've been to padre island twice, and have had instruction by 3 different companies, and Brett is by far the best. He's watching second by second the entire time giving instructions as you need them on kite movement, board control, body posture, you name it he comes up with so many suggestions for improvement and I realize yea, I'm doing...
