Petra Kanz and Joel Parker.
We are not a retail store. We only teach in the safest, most efficient way possible. Together we have logged over 35 combined years of certified instruction, putting thousands of competent students on the water. We both hold USCG (United States Coast Guard) approved Captain’s licenses, current First Aid and CPR , PASA (Professional Air Sports Association) and US -Sailing certifications. We love teaching watersports because we love the water. So we moved (from Colorado and New Jersey, respectively) to teach on South Padre Island, Texas.
S P I offers fairly consistent conditions year round and combined with the safety of shallow unobstructed waters of the Laguna Madre is the premier teaching location in the United States. For more advanced clients there are ocean conditions in the Gulf of Mexico. This means we are able to accommodate all levels of students.
We offer lessons in Kiteboarding/surfing, Windsurfing, Kitebuggying and Stand Up Paddle Boarding. H2O Sports also offers Stand Up Paddle Boarding Tours to remote areas of our Laguna Madre. Kitesurfing excursions and downwinders. We are confident to advance you towards your goals in the safest manner possible. Please feel free to contact us at any time for information, our programs, or South Padre Island.
We hope to meet you soon!
