South Padre Island Kiteboard Round Up
Kiteboarders from all over the world are at the flats on the north side of the island for the South Padre Island Kiteboarding Round-Up which will run until May 10th.
The strong winds have proven irresistable to the kiteboarders…
allowing some to get some serious sky.
They glide along the water’s surface so gracefully, they make it look easy.
There are professionals who can do flips and spin with ease.
The kiteboarders were in excellent physical shape and were at the top of their game during competition.
This is a great time to head out to the flats to watch some of the best kiteboarders in the world perform. Pictured below is Gary Rhodes, world famous for his kiteboarding skills. Competitions begin at noon and continue throughout the day.
