This DVD is excellent. I come from a background of windsurfing, wakeboarding and flying trainer kites so I was looking for something that would give some technical details as well as basic instruction. Real devlivered big time.

Not only is the kiteboarding instruction great, but there's a whole bunch of info about the gear and how to tune and repair everything from you kite to your board. The way it's laid out makes it easy to understand and follow.

After watching this I took a 17.5 kite out on the beach and had no problem flying it around and getting drug up and down the sand. I took a lesson and within two hours I was on the water cruising along like I'd done it for years. I have to credit this video for giving me a huge head start.

If your going to take some lessons get this DVD, you won't regret it.

I bought this video to help teach myself how to kiteboard. I also bought a few other videos and this one was faaaaarrrrrr superior. This is not only well produced and enjoyable to watch, but it's also incredibly informative. It was also formatted in a way that it could be used as a reference while you're learning, and I ended up going back to reference the DVD a number of times. For a beginner, this DVD is a must. I can't say I'm a 'Hero' quite yet, but I'm well on my way, and will be purchasing the next one in the series when I'm ready.

This was the first instructional video I bought thinking that it was the only option. Although the explanations of kite design, set up, and especially safety are generally good, I didn't find the techniques described to be as easy to emulate as those of the Progression video. This is mainly because the camera shots are too far removed from the actual position of the kite, the board, and the body and feet of the rider to give you a sense of what you should be doing. After much trial and error on the water, I realized that this video is not as good as it could be. By contrast, the Progression video positions the camera up close and personal: right at the head of the rider -- which makes you feel like you are learning right there with them and it takes that extra step of analyzing what you should be doing relative to their position out of the learning curve. Moreover, the Progression videos are edited to show pictorially, the position and direction of the wind and the position and direction of the kite/body/board/feet etc., this is VERY helpful. In addition, the Progression videos take you through common mistakes that beginner riders make and tells and shows you how to work through them.

The one extra on the Real video I liked was the explanation of different board types. This is a nice tutorial for when you are ready to progress to another board. Then they had this music video which just seemed erroneous (music as background would have been enough...really). Then there was this bad video from Liquid Force which showed nothing (check out the new Addikt video from Fone; its amazing!!!) with a hip-hop tune half of which was edited for profanity...honestly, if you're going choose a tune that your gonna have to bleep out just choose a different one.

Humble suggestion.... you guys run an really great shop but this video is due for a rework.

Content of this video is good but Progression Kiteboarding series is much much better. If you want a bigger bang for your dollar I would strongly suggest the Progression series. Had the sense that the actors in this video are surfers wanting to make a video...Progression's videos are professionally and technically specific and overall a superior product! You'd be a Zero to buy this video.

This DVD is a filming of kitesurfing instructors conducting lessons. As such it does not provide instructional material from the standpoint of a person viewing a video. Also, it only goes up through the waterstart and has very little on riding technique. It does not point out common mistakes that the viewer may be making. The Progression series of kitesurfing instructional DVDs is far superior.

I've viewed about five different kiteboarding tutorial videos over the years.

The Real Zero-to-Hero is one of the best for beginners and I would recommend buying. For 90% of the people, the Zero-to-Hero DVD will be all you need for the first year of your experience in the sport, without buying any of the other intermediate/advanced DVD's.

This video is particularly good at going over the basics slowly and in very good detail. However, it is lacking once you get on the water. This is where the Progression video is better.

If you want something that's a little less detailed, but gives you a little more detail once you're past the basics, choose the *2nd* edition of the Progression Beginner DVD. The second edition of Progression is much better than the first, don't make the mistake of buying the earlier version.

If you can afford it, I would highly recommend buying both. Watch Zero-to-Hero first, then Progression a bit later.

If you can only afford to buy one, you cannot go wrong with either video. If I were planning on taking a lesson an limited to only one video, I would buy the Zero-to-Hero DVD. If I were not taking a lesson (a questionable strategy in this sport), then Progression might get you a little further.
