Hang Gliding on the Outer Banks


Kitty Hawk Kites offers an array of different hang gliding lessons at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head, NC – about 25 miles north of Waves Village Watersports Resort.

Beginner lessons start with classroom instruction, and then you’ll suit up with a helmet and harness and head over to the dunes for the flying portion of the lesson. Beginner lessons are offered in 3 and 5 flight packages, and are suitable for most every age group, including children and older adults.

Jockey’s Ridge State Park is one of the best places to learn how to hang glide in the entire world thanks to the consistent, smooth winds and soft sand dunes. Plus, Kitty Hawk Kites has exceptional instructors and has been teaching hang gliding at the State Park since 1974.
