by REAL Watersports

REAL is known around the world as the leader in high-end watersports instruction. Our professional staff, custom programs, state of the art teaching facility, and instructional DVDs, make REAL the ultimate source for learning the best sports on the water.

REAL is proud to announce the long anticipated release of our REAL Surfing Instructional Programs. These programs will bring the world acclaimed service and instructional levels of REAL to the sport of surfing. Under the guidance of REAL Head Surf Coach Sam Bell, these surfing instructional programs are sure to be a huge hit with our existing clients, as well as with new students and surfers from outside REAL's client base.

"The release of our REAL Standup Instructional DVD was a huge eye opener for us. What we have learned through developing our kiteboarding instructional programs is easily applicable to the sports of surfing and standup paddleboarding, making them easier, faster and more fun to learn. Our REAL coaches have helped bring REAL to the forefront of instructional based programs of all sports worldwide, including skiing and snowboarding. The roll out of these instructional programs into the surf industry is already "making waves" across the country. The bottom line is that people value their time and want professional services and dedicated staff to help them learn these new sports at the fastest rate possible, while also delivering the highest end experience available. This is what REAL is all about, and we are excited about this next step in our business." - Trip Forman REAL Co-Founder
