“Air Padre Kiteboarding - Great Choice!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We had such a great time learning to kiteboard with Air Padre. The entire staff was consistently professional, helpful, and friendly. Our instructor was particularly fantastic. He made certain that we progressed in a safe and logical manner and went out of his way to keep us informed on wind conditions throughout the week. Meanwhile, he also made sure that we absolutely had a blast while we were learning to kite for the very first time. I highly recommend Air Padre for their level of professionalism, safety, and customer service (and radio helmets very helpful when learning!).

“Awesome Hydro-Bikes!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We had a fantastic experience on the hydro-bikes at Air Padre. Our family, including a 16 year old son and 11 year old daughter, thoroughly enjoyed the hydro-bikes on two different days! The South Padre bay is calm and shallow (can stand up in most places) with beautiful coastal views and elegant birds to "cycle" past. Gaylon provided great instructions on how to stay between the posts and avoid the shallow areas with sea weed.

“Great service and pointers”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

United Air Lines ripped my bag and 2 kites on Sat. night. Jeff and Gears had me on the water with one repaired kite and another new one by the next afternoon ...my trip was saved. Jeff also was able to trouble shoot my poor technique in the shop and had me floating my jumps with just a few pointers. Thank you Jeff & Gears

Thank you for your great review. I would like to mention we close at 5 although we do ask that our rentals be in by 4:30. I understand that may be too early, so we will look into extending that time frame. Again Thanks for you review!
