2012 SPI Kite Round-Up

South Padre Island, Feb. 16, 2012 - The dates for the 4th annual SPI Kite Round-Up event have been set! May 3rd - 6th, will see the 2012 SPI Kite Round-Up on the world-class kiteboarding destination of South Padre Island, Texas. The main sponsors of the event include the City of South Padre Island and Air Padre Kiteboarding.

The price to attend this year's demo event is free! Participants will have the opportunity to try out new kiteboarding gear from a wide range of sponsoring kite manufacturers for no required registration fee. The demo event will be held on the South Flats beach, next to the South Padre Island convention center, offering a huge expanse of sand flats with water front access.

South Padre Island, located at the southern tip of the Texas Gulf Coast, has long been a premiere destination for wind and surf. Kiteboarding has become very popular on the island due to strong steady winds, warm weather, and shallow/calm water of the Laguna Madre Bay. May conditions on South Padre are notoriously windy, and combined with tropical temperatures make it one of the best times of year to visit.

Don't miss this great opportunity to visit South Padre Island, Texas with family and friends. This is your chance to enjoy the sun, wind, and water while getting the chance to demo kiteboarding equipment for free during the 2012 SPI Kite Round-Up.
