Ride the Wind is one of the most popular places on Ocracoke to get you in touch with the beauty and fun that surrounds you on this magic little island. They provide a myriad of classes and adventures: guided kayak ecotours and rentals, surf camps, surf lessons and SUP Yoga. The guided sunrise, midday, sunset and full moon kayak ecotours accommodate up to 10 people and provide all necessary equipment and training. You should bring watershoes, water, a hat, sunglasses, insect repellent, sunscreen and a camera. These tours are very popular, so it's a good idea to make reservations in advance. You can also rent kayaks here for your own adventure. Ride the Wind introduces surfing and ocean safety through their group and private lesson programs. From June to early August, these group lessons are held Tuesdays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and are designed for all ages. They will also arrange special camps for your group. All instructors are trained in ocean safety, first aid and CPR, and they use softboards to minimize the chance of injury. Ride the Wind also offers personal private lessons to get you started on your surfing journey. Lessons are scheduled individually or for your group in one-hour blocks. Their instructors are experienced surfers who live to spread the gospel of surfing. In SUP yoga you can flow through yoga poses as you enjoy the warmth of the sun, the smell of the salt air and your fingertips grazing the water as you float on your board. SUP Yoga challenges your balance and increases core stability. Classes are offered weekly. No experience is needed, but advance reservations are required.
