Great People

“Whatever vitamins the REAL employees are being fed to make them all so nice and welcoming and caring to all the clients are definitely working because I had an absolute blast.”

— Patrick Johnson


FANTASTIC!

“Attended the Zero to Hero camp and have to say it exceeded my expectations. Before signing up I looked at some other lessons on Hatteras and kept coming back to the REAL Watersports site. Something just kept telling me this is the place to go. I'm glad I did. What a wonderful facility. It's just first-class all the way around!”

— Bobby Dow


The Only Way to Learn

“After spending three days with REAL, I realized that this is the only way to learn. Having the coach be right with you on the ski coaching you through the entire experience was amazing. I was able to progress so much faster and farther than expected.”

— Russell Terry
