Kiteboarders at South Padre Island

On my second day at the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival a fast-moving cold front moved through the area. I decided to drive over to south Padre Island to see what was happening in the coastal area. The strong winds had lured the kiteboarders to Laguna Madre Bay. I had a wonderful time watching them.

I made this short video. Be sure to watch the boarder in the back as he catches some incredible air 26 seconds into the video.

  1. Great video Linda. We’ve been watching these in FL too, amazing how fast they move, and only holding on with one hand!

  2. Wow, oh what a thrill that must be! Great video, Linda!
