I'm Charles Ash owner of VIPER, V.I.P. Extreme Recreation and I am proud to report about our early success. We have had great response from the kite industry and our customers.

Our VIPER Team has worked endlessly with passion to create our unique V.I.P. services so that you have as much fun as humanly possible with Rock Star treatment.

Dan Charlish Testimonial excerpt:
"nothing was ever to much to ask and he made it his business to make sure I had the best kiting experiences of my life – and he achieved this for sure. Dan Charlish"

We strive for excellence providing our clients the best in V.I.P. Extreme Recreation.

"its really all about downwinders in OBX – and these are tricky if there is only one of you! VIPER pick you up, drop you off, give you all the local knowledge you need and make sure you maximise every hour of wind." Dan Charlish.


As VIPER continues to grow, we will be vigilant in posting photography & video to our website, www.vipobx.com, and through social media including Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

I could meet with the Viper staff during my stay in the Outer Banks and ride with them few times in different downwinders and really enjoyed it.
Real friendly, fun guys and great riders.
They also offer high quality Photo & Video services of the Downwinders/excursions they offer.
Plenty of quality gear to Demo and choose from.
Keep the good work guys!!!

Throughout this summer our VIPER Team has been at multiple locations doing equipment demos. At one of the Demo Days at Kitty Hawk Kites Waves Village Kiteboarding Resort, we met up with Kiteboarder Mickey Roy. Earlier this summer he had taken several downwinders with us and we were very impressed.
The conditions that day were 35-40mph and he was on a 9m Epic Renegade.
He was one of a handful of kiteboarders on the water and he was putting on a show for all to see! After helping a customer I grabbed my camera and headed out to capture the moment.
On Mickeys first pass, he pull the trigger and up he went in super stylish big air form! He was way up there and tweaked out for all to see... CLICK... I took the shot!

Keep flying hi Mickey! We are ready to take you riding anytime!

It's what you tried to avoid when you were first learning to kite. :( When you avoided it for the first time it was a milestone in your kiting progress. :congrats: Next came kiting upwind. :winner1: Now you can pay for the priveledge. :cash:

I got a kick out of the "Kiteboard with a Legend" option for $625...

If I start a downwinder and Dimitri is around, it's usually best to get out ahead or wait until they go....because one way or other there is going to be a lot of cockblocking and kites crashing near your head! :lol: :lol:

He's a blast to watch and full of contagious enthusiasm. And a great instructor if he still does lessons. But pay to kite with him?, I dunno...

The Outer Banks serves up a wide range of conditions. Yesterday, we took Mr. Jon Gates on a downwinder ocean side.

He showed skill and technique doing a true downwinder in light conditions.
Mr. Gates drew ooo's and aaa's from all the beach goers...

as he ripped through the shore break and performed back rolls and kite loops.

A true joy for us to provide our services to such a great person!
