I took a private e- foil lesson with Craig. He had me up and riding quickly with expert instruction and positive feedback. I highly recommend signing up as it will help with learning kite foiling skills. The e foils where excellent quality which is expected with Real Watersports. Safety protocols followed.

I cannot recommend REAL Watersports highly enough. I am a 62 year old, active female and have windsurfed off and on since 1976 and my objective was to learn how to wing foil. They paired me with a wonderful teacher Zoe who was 100% tuned into what I wanted to achieve. She mixed different ways to teach me wing foiling depending on weather conditions. Land exercises, wing experience on a regular board, foiling behind the water scooter, e-foiling and actual wing foiling. I had three half day lessons with her and feel that I learned all I needed to now go onto my own equipment to make progress by simply getting on the water. Everything I had hoped for happened. Zoe also had flexibility to time our lessons such that we would gain the most from wind conditions on that particular day. And she had excellent input on gear decisions for me to make. The store has a huge selection of products. Every single staff member including at the learning center was super friendly, helpful and welcoming. I was traveling solo but felt in a group of friends. I plan to return again to perfect my skills as I get better at this sport.

To give context to this review, I took a lesson back in April and it did not go well. Management at Real reached back out to me and suggested a different instructor that might be a better fit to the challenges I was facing. My instructor (Esben) was a great communicator, patient and he modified my stance which had me up and riding far better than I had ever been riding before. Great experience and I will be back again in 2022.

Stayed at Watermens to kiteboard. Really convenient launch site. They have staff there to launch/land your kite. The slick just upwind is fantastic for flatwater.
