South Padre Island Texas

Well, I did not get a whole lot of wind the first time I went there but it didn't matter much. The place has sweet mudflats for landboarding and this was actually a lot of fun. I am going again in October and hopefully the wind will be better. SPI is a definite party town during the summer season so there is no shortage of fun to be had. There were a lot of top riders and new gear when I went for the South Padre Island Rodeo and we got some good land boarding and lifestyle photos.

Hey, thanks for the pics, what an awesome roadtrip! In case you didn't know, If you're at SPI and it's not blowing at the Flats, chances are fairly good that it's ripping across the bay at Holly Beach. When I was there I had several fun days with Cliff and the crew from SPI Kiteboarding on GLASS at Holly when it was dead on the other side. Have a fun trip.

Yeah Holly was the only place we really got any wind while I was there. If you can deal with the smell, the place goes off.
