Learn to fly a stunt kite on the dunes of Jockey’s Ridge State Park. With a Beginner Kite Flying Lesson, you will learn how to launch, steer, loop, dive, and land a framed stunt kite with one of our kite instructors. A typical Beginner Kite Flying Lesson will last between 1.5 – 2 hours, depending on the amount of students. The class starts with check in at Kitty Hawk Kites in Nags Head, directly across the highway from the dunes. There, you will learn about winds, safety and flying conditions, as well as how to assemble and handle a 2- line stunt kite.

Next, your instructor will take you across the highway and up onto Jockey’s Ridge Dunes. The walk is about 100 yards from the store to our flying location on the front of the dune. Once the instructor gives you a demonstration of how to fly a kite, you will begin to fly on your own!

Realize your dream of flight on the soft sand and gentle slopes of Jockey's Ridge State Park, the tallest natural sand dune on the East Coast. Accompanied by the steady breeze of North Carolina's Outer Banks, there is no better place to experience the sensation of flight, just as the Wright Brothers did when they made history in Kitty Hawk in 1903.

The Beginner Dune Lesson is a great introduction to hang gliding. The emphasis is on fundamentals and fun during a 3-hour lesson, which includes a training film, ground school, log booklet, all equipment, and 5 solo flights.



Experience the seclusion of the Kitty Hawk Woods Coastal Preserve as you kayak along this amber creek under a canopy of Live Oaks and Red Maples. Just a stone’s throw from Kitty Hawk Road, this trip offers a special look into the forest reserves that still exist on the Outer Banks.

While kayaking, let our guide teach you about maritime forests and the diverse terrestrial biomes that make up our barrier island. This kayak tour is great for all skill levels from beginners to seasoned veterans. The shelter provided by the tall trees of the forest keeps the water here calm, even on windy days
