I have been twice now, and I brought my 19 and 21-year-old on the second visit. After one week of instruction, my children are both very proficient, self-sufficient and SAFE kiters. I learned a bit more slowly but have also gained enough proficiency to feel comfortable and have a blast kiting. We are truly in love with this sport and are so grateful to Real for the world-class instruction. I wish every company that I'm a customer of could hire and train the way Real does because the staff are truly exceptional -- in attitude and capability. Thanks to the Real team for one of the best vacations we've ever had!

Everyone ignore those one star ratings....This facility, staff and training are world class. You can travel the world and not find a better place to kite and learn kiteboarding. My daughter and I attended the Zero to Hero program and it was the best! My daughter is absolutely hooked on kiteboarding now and I anticipate she and I will be doing it for years to come. My instructor, Joel, was amazing. He had tons of patience with me and yes, I was able to get up on the final day and rip-around. There would be no chance at all of getting up if I tried to learn kiteboarding by myself.

Wow. This place is great. I came here one day on the recommendation of a local because I thought I had a pinhole in my kite. I dropped it off with them. They called the next day and said they inflated the kite and it held its air, and I told that can't be. I went down there and talked to Jessie (or Casey) in the rental shop. Me and 3 other people heard the air leaking so I thought maybe the pinhole was blocked in the bladder. Jessie agreed to take the bladder out and see where the hole was. He let me stay and watch, and even let me assist in removing the bladder since I've never done it before. After pulling out the bladder we couldn't find the pinhole, so we put the bladder back in. I still have no idea where the leak was coming from. After putting it back in, he didn't charge me for the labor. I had to tip him anyway for the time/effort he put into it. The next day while flying the kite, one of the rubber tubes that feeds into a rib came off in mid air. I took the kite back and another guy helped me ziptie it and didn't charge me for it. Everyone was so extremely friendly. I ended up bringing my friends back and we all bought some stuff. Such a good store. I also bought new foot holds for me board and they attached them for me. I highly recommend this place and will go back the next time I'm there.

Wow ! What a great time. The staff, location and equipment was top of the line. Loved it. Learning in warm shallow water really made it more comfortable and gave me confidence. I recommend it to anyone looking to make learning to kite board faster and easier. My only advice ..remember your sunblock !!

Glad you had fun Zackary!! See you on the water soon!

Just came back from a Cabarete/Dominican Republic kite trip with all my gear and in one piece... except for one control bar on a new Liquid Force kite which suffered a minor failure... (Maybe too much wind this year!) Anyway, just sent a picture showing the broken part to Matt at Real and one week and a bit later, new parts showed up at my door. Thanks Matt, Real and LF, amazing service, hassel-free, going well beyond expectation! Keep it up! Cheers, steve G

Great customer service. They shipped a surfboard for me. Very reasonable shipping charge. Board was packed professionally. Arrived quickly and safely. They also emailed pictures for me. Service was very efficient and friendly.

Awesome place! Live music, epic sunset view with kite surfers on the horizon. Ordered the crab cakes and they were delicious, along with the veggies and mashed potatoes. Giving 4 stars because there was only one server running all over the place, doing his best, and specially the bar tender outside was not very nice. Totally recommend this place and will go back for sure!

Although they can be pricey for the new stuff they do have great deals on demo and older model kites. One of the best places to learn how to kite period and the staff is super nice and inviting.
