Here at PKS Distribution, we are dedicated to the enjoyment of kitesurfing at every level. Our location in Corpus Christi, Texas is the most consistently windy place on average in the US and affords us the ability to ride nearly every day of the year. We are rider-owned and operated and dedicated to the development of the sport, working closely with many manufacturers of kite equipment and accessories to develop our sport in a safe and performance-oriented manner. Born out of a small kite production operation started by Jeff Howard, PKS Distribution has progressed into a distributor and design team for high end kiteboarding products.
