Learn to Kiteboard

by REAL Watersports

You see them everywhere…Kites in the air, kiteboarders in the air, people having fun right near where you live or vacation.

“Can I learn to kiteboard?” It’s a question we get asked every single day.
REAL was founded in 2001 with our mission statement that still rings true today, “We Make New Riders Every Day”. As the first kiteboarding school in the world, REAL has taught over 37,000 new riders. REAL Kiteboarding Camps are ranked among the Top 10 Adventure Camps in the World. REAL Co-Founder Trip Forman and Matt Nuzzo were listed by Kiteboarding Magazine among the “Top 10 Most influential People in the History of the Sport”.

Why does REAL receive all this recognition? Because REAL makes learning to kiteboard EASY and ACCESSIBLE for almost anyone.

Today we see students of all ages and backgrounds. Men and women, ages 7 up to well over 70 years old. Doubt it? Watch the AARP crew HERE. Basically, if you are comfortable in the water, you can learn to kiteboard!

The REAL Zero to Hero Kite Camp takes all the hassles out of learning to kiteboard. This three-day camp takes place in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Waist deep water, consistent winds year round, private launch site and the best coaches in the business make REAL the best place to learn to kiteboard in the world.

REAL Zero to Hero Kite Camp has been designed for RANK BEGINNERS and is the fastest, most efficient and FUN way to learn the sport of kiteboarding. REAL also teaches 4 other kite camps (Evolution, Joyride, Surf and Triple-S) spanning the ability range all the way up to Expert/Pro level. We teach Zero to Hero and Evolution “back to back” so clients can take both camps in one trip to maximize their progression. The REAL Instructional DVD Series allows you to prepare for each camp from home to maximize your progression while here in Cape Hatteras.


All REAL Kite Camps include use of all 2012 kiteboarding gear from the best in the industry and 1 REAL coach with a PWC (jetski) for every 2 students. The PWC makes it very easy and SAFE to learn, as the coach is ALWAYS within talking distance of you to keep your learning curve vertical. This also means no “water walking” upwind at the end of your session. All of your focus and energy can be applied toward learning to kiteboard.

When learning to kiteboard with REAL, you can stay at Watermen’s Retreat, which features deluxe waterfront and waterview condominiums located directly beside REAL.
