Lessons begin at 9:00am daily. You are expected to show up at least 30 minutes prior to this to prepare for the course. You will be required to start on time and be prepared, although if it’s a late wind day they may begin later in the day. 

Since kiteboarding is a wind dependent sport, there is no guarantee of working hours, but typically we have extremely good kiteboarding conditions at least 3-4 days a week on average. 


We are located on the Outer Banks of NC, beautiful barrier islands of the coast of North Carolina. We are famous for many reasons, the history of flight started here with the Wilbur and Orville Wright Monument and museum. We have 4 lighthouses, including the tallest on the East Coast. Named the “Graveyard of the Atlantic” there are world class dive sites just off the coastline. Pristine bird sanctuaries and some of the most beautiful kayaking you can imagine. We are also home of the largest hang gliding school in the country and you have FREE access to our hang gliding lessons as well as our kayak eco-tours!

The Kiteboarding:

We boast some of the best kiteboarding conditions in the world! Super consistent winds, warmer waters that extend the season, and our famous flatwater “sound” riding paradise. 390 sq. miles of shallow water that is only waist deep! That is right the perfect flat water riding spot! We also have some of the best surf on the entire East Coast. The Outer Banks is famous for its incredible surf! You won’t be disappointed!
