SPI Kite Roundup Winds Up

 

The SPI Kiteboard Round Up wound up in style this past weekend.

Professional and amateur kiteboarders took to the bayside of South Padre Island, TX to show how beautiful and exciting harnessing the power of the wind can be.

These guys did not come to look at the pretty bodies as some students tend to do during Spring Break.

 Their beautiful fit bodies come as a byproduct of their lifestyle. NONE of them had any body fat and all of them had six pack abs.

These guys were able to dance on the surface of the water like it was made for them.

Their agility on the water and in the air made for some excellent shots.

I don’t know how so many kiteboarders were able to not get tangled up but no one did.

Even the ladies were out there flying on the water.

The weather was so perfect for the kiteboarders, it was as if they had custom-ordered it as part of a vacation package.

They made it look so easy you wanted to try it but actually it is a very dangerous sport. The wind is a powerful, powerful ally but can be your enemy in a split second. If you land incorrectly, you could break your legs from the sheer force so it is a hobby that is taken very seriously and must be prepared for. There were clinics and trainers available for lessons.

The Island’s own kiteboarding instructor, Jeff, from Air Padre (in white sunglasses) was there to make sure everyone was tken care of because that is how it is done on South Padre Island.
