I had my first lesson with Kite Club Hatteras. I was amazed at how quickly we were in the water flying the kite. The whole experience was exhilarating and a ton of fun! James was extremely patient and skilled at helping me to feel successful in a short time. I highly recommend Kite Club Hatteras!

This was our third trip to Avon and our third time working with Kite Club Hatteras. Each time the coaches have been excellent and always flexible in terms of getting me and my friends out on the water at the best time for our skill level. We appreciate very much the fact that if you can't get out, they don't charge you. That seems obvious given that we are all dependent on wind....but not everyone has that approach. The equipment is top notch and often renewed which is also appreciated. We love the team and will be back! Etienne B

I just returned from Avon in the outer banks,NC during which time I spent 6 days wing foiling with The Kite club hataras crew.. specifically James. He was absolutely a fantastic and patient teacher and was always available to offer different methods to make my experience the best it could be. The owner Christos was also a great source of info and support as well. I highly recommend this very dedicated foil, kite, and winging teaching center for the best experience possible. Andy Wolin

We spent a week in Hatteras to take advantage of the great kiteboarding conditions. We found lodging elsewhere but we signed up for a week of lessons with Kite Club Hatteras. There are quite a few kite schools to choose from in Hatteras, but we selected Kite Club Hatteras because of the consistently positive reviews and the fair pricing. I initially dealt with Christo, the owner, in setting up our lesson program. The default arrangement is to have a 3-hour lesson, but our preference was to do 2-hour lessons to avoid getting over-tired. Christo was more than happy to accommodate this request. Our instructors were Rick and Oleg and I cannot say enough good things about them. A number of other reviewers, including on Google Reviews, have commented that both of them are extremely patient, "chill," friendly, professional, on-time, safety-conscious, and other positive adjectives. We found all of these things to be true. Kiting is often referred to as an extreme sport, and the main reason is that if a problem develops while you are kiteboarding, it can become a scary situation very quickly if it is not addressed the right way, promptly. Rick and Oleg are able to manage the safety of their students by teaching best practices, watching for and correcting mistakes, all while projecting a sense of calm. They are able to do this without coming across as overbearing. One of the nice bonuses that Oleg and Rick provided is that, when they had a free moment, they took some videos of us up and riding. These are great to show friends and family who are curious about the sport. You could set yourself up with a GoPro, but it looks much cooler when your instructor makes the video from a jetski. Kite schools don't control the weather, of course, and we had some pretty wild changes in the wind conditions while we were here. The forecasts are not always reliable, and on days where our planned lesson time was going to coincide with extremely strong, gusty winds, Rick and Oleg moved us to a different time slot on the same day so that we could enjoy our time on the water without feeling overpowered by the wind. In my book, one of the marks of an excellent kite school is quality gear. There's nothing scarier than trying to kite with a malfunctioning bar, harness or kite. All of the gear we used at Kite Club Hatteras was in great condition and we had zero equipment problems while we were out on the water. We live in DC and plan to return to Hatteras. Kite Club Hatteras will be our first choice for additional lessons, and Oleg and Rick will be our first choice for instructors,
