Here are the key ingredients that pushed REAL to the top of the list…
Cape Hatteras National Seashore
The beaches in Cape Hatteras are some of the most beautiful, pristine, and uncrowded in the world. Cape Hatteras has been a regular listing among Leatherman's Top Ten Beaches in the country. White sand, warm Gulf Stream water, green beach grass, porpoises, turtles, pelicans and more. The cooling effect of the consistent SW and NE winds make even the warmer Summer months extremely pleasant.
Ranked by Outside Magazine as one of the Top Ten Adventure Camps in the World, REAL is recognized as the international leader for kiteboarding instruction. REAL has pioneered the teaching techniques of Kite Camps and On the Fly (PWC-assisted teaching and safety). These groundbreaking teaching methods have revolutionized the sport, making it noticeably easier to learn and more accessible to almost anyone willing to learn. REAL recently followed up their world famous REAL Kite Camps with the REAL Instructional DVD Series. These DVDs are now the best selling products in the sport of kiteboarding and the most informative instructional kiteboarding dvds on the market.
“With kiteboarding equipment evolving so rapidly over the past five years, the sport of kiteboarding has become accessible to almost anyone, and perfectly suited for family fun. Kiteboarding is a great sport for the family. You can all share the same equipment, it provides quality family time at the beach together and the wind is free ! The young kids can start flying kiteboarding trainer kites as young as 5 years of age and we have more grandparent riders than you would think!”- Trip Forman, Co-Founder, REAL Kiteboarding
