South Padre Island Report
March 24 - April 03, 2003
Location: South Padre Island is located just north of Brownsville Texas, at the very southern end of the Gulf Coast. The Island itself is a barrier which separates the Gulf of Mexico from the protected Laguna Madre. The weather is tropical and the winds are reliably strong.
Season: The kiteboarding season lasts from early spring until December. The winds tend to taper off in December, January and February and evening temperatures in the 30â€™s wouldnâ€™t be uncommon. Spring break periods are very crowded on the island and you may want to totally avoid this place during the big parties. Also, summer is prime time for Texanâ€™s to come to â€œThe Island.â€
