Best Schools Premier Destination: Real Kiteboarding
Cape Hatteras, North Carolina
Welcome to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, home to North Carolina's only Official Best Kiteboarding School, REAL Watersports. REAL has been the North American leader in kiteboard instruction for the past 7 years and invites you to come to Cape Hatteras to learn to kiteboard.
Cape Hatteras is located off the east coast of northern North Carolina. The slim strip of island offers riding in every wind direction. Furthermore, Cape Hatteras boasts some of the best kiteboarding in the world because of the variety of riding.
Kiteboard SchoolWith more than 7 years of experience instructing new and seasoned riders, REAL Coaches are simply the best at what they do. The REAL school is stocked with a full line of Best Kites. All water lessons have a maximum 2:1 student to coach ratio to assure lots of personal interaction and involvement during lessons. In addition, all coaches have personal watercrafts during instruction. When you take a lesson with REAL, there's no walking up wind.
If you're just learning to kiteboard, the Pamlico Sound is probably the best place to learn to kiteboard. The sound is waist deep for as far as the eye can see. This means no swimming and no deep water relaunching. If you crash your kite and lose your board, simply stand up and walk back to it; no problems!
If you're a seasoned rider, there is every condition for you to choose from. There are lots of flat water riding spots for tweaked out wake style in addition to miles of ocean for riding in the surf.
Take one of our 3 daykitecamps to maximize your kiteboarding learning curve. REAL Kiteboarding invented the “Kite Camp” back in 2000. Since then, REAL has been teaching camps full time and has evolved the program through feedback from thousands of students and a full-time roster of over 20 coaches. For seven years, our staff has been dedicated to "Making New Riders Everyday" and progressing riders' skills beyond heights they never thought achievable. Our experience in instruction is unmatched. If you are thinking of becoming a kiteboarder or advancing your current skills, REAL Kite Camps are your ticket to accelerated, safe and progressive instruction!!

No wind? No problem
When not kiting, there is so much to do in Cape Hatteras. The Outer Banks is the east coast hub for surfing. With countless spots, both popular and secret, you can make lots of friends or enjoy your own piece of paradise. Even on days when the waves are small, grab a standup paddleboard and go for a session. Standup paddleboarding is a new sport taking the surfing community by storm! Whether the waves are head high or breaking at your shins, stellar sessions can be had. If the ocean is too intimidating, hop in some flat water and go for a leisurely paddle through the sound.
