Windsurfing vacations

Windsurfing Vacations

Cape Hatteras is known around the world as the land of downwinders. With some of the consistently best wind and water conditions on the East Coast, and miles of water to cruise on, it's no wonder that windsurfers from around the world come to the Outer Banks to break out the sails, lean back, and enjoy the ride. Seventy miles of unlimited access to the water, both soundside and Oceanside, allow riders to pick and choose their perfect length run and the shallow waters of the Pamlico Sound makes this location ideal for both beginners and pros.

Launch Sites

The Canadian Hole –
A Hatteras favorite, halfway between Avon & Buxton.
The 1st, 2nd, & 3rd Turnouts –Just north of Avon, there are 3 soundside beaches that are great places to set up for the day and kite in shallow, friendly waters. This is a great place to bring your family.
Isabelle's –South of Frisco, there is a parking lot on the soundside and a small access path to the water.

Ego Beach –
Park at the Canadian Hole and walk across the street to the Ocean. This is a great place if you do not have a 4-wheel drive vehicle or a ORV Beach Driving Permit.
The Lighthouse –Enter the CAHA National Park and turn left into the "Old Lighthouse" parking lot. Beware, the waves here can get pretty heavy and make sure you know where the Jetty is.
The Cove –A rare occurrence, but heavenly when conditions are just right.
The Southside –Typically the Bath Houses or Isabelle's (ocean-launch).
Ferry Docks –Way down in Hatteras, park at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum or continue down the beach road if you have 4WD and permit.
