About Kite Hatteras
KITE HATTERAS offers the most efficient form of teaching on the East Coast. Ty Luckett’s custom kite boat offers safe and dry comfort as well as launching from the boat with all the equipment you need for any conditions. You will be on the water quickly with kites that are already rigged and a compressor to inflate them. More time for you to learn! Kite Hatteras specializes in PERSONAL ATTENTION Our camps have no more than 2 students (unless requested for a family or friends) With a certified boat captain, the latest Cabrinha kites and equipment and a boat that is specifically designed for use as a kite boarding instruction tool, Kite Hatteras offers a lesson program that is unlike any other. Kite Hatteras is the only company that offers "The Tower”, which provides instruction even in no wind conditions! Focusing entirely on board skills, "The Tower" pulls you out of the water at a 45 degree angle just as the kite will - allowing you to become comfortable with edging and proper foot pressure which are necessities for kiteboarding success. ABOUT TY Ty has been involved in the USA kitesurfing industry since its inception. Long before most of us had ever heard of kitesurfing, he mastered this new and exciting sport in April of 1998. He also has over twenty years of windsurfing experience. Ty was one of the first kiteboarding instructors in the country. While sponsored by "F-One Kites", he began "Grab High", a kiteboarding school based in Hatteras. For years, he taught lessons all over the USA. Ty was the head instructor at Kiteboarding Hatteras, a flight instructor with a commercial pilot's license and is a sponsored rider for Cabrinha. Ty has been featured in videos like "Air Sickness", "Pure North", "Pistol River Wave Bash", and "Kooks of Hazard." He continues to be one of most well respected local kitesurfers and continues to push himself to the next level. He offers top quality lessons with the highest level of professionalism and safety.

Spent 2 hours actually kiting instead of getting to the site, setting up, and recovering the board. We boated to a nice spot off shore, still shallow but away from the beach and other kiters. Kites were pre-rigged on the boat, the electric air pump made set up fast, the head sets made instruction easy (vs. some guy yelling at you from shore that you can't even hear) and the boat made upwind board recovery fast. Did more in 1 session as would normally get in 2 or 3 sessions. Well worth it.... Thanks Ty!

Ty, you were a big help today. Your Tower and your patience in helping me get more comfortable on the board were just what I needed to raise my kite boarding skills. Thanks a bunch!

There is instruction and then there is practice. Capt Lucket is a great instructor. He can just as easily instruct a person in their 50s or a teenager. His board training set up on his boat is one of a kind . You have to see it to understand but it really helps to learn. Boat is set up to teach with air compressor , cooler , plenty of seats, new boat and the board training system . Easy 5 star.
