SUP
The sport of Standup Paddle boarding is exploding worldwide! People of all ages are drawn to the sport for its ease of access, simple equipment, excellent core exercise potential and endless learning curve. From paddling the flat water of lakes and rivers to surfing the beach breaks and point breaks of the world. Standup Paddle boarding is a sport that almost anyone can enjoy.

Kiteboarding & Windsurfing
Cape Hatteras is known around the world as the land of the kiteboarding downwinders. Seventy miles of unlimited access to the water, both soundside and Oceanside, allow riders to pick and choose their perfect-length run. Come harness the power of the prevailing south westerly wind! With consistent wind conditions and accommodations right on the water, it’s no surprise that so many kiters choose Hatteras Island as their top kiteboarding destination.

Surfing
Rising from their long journey in the Atlantic, and building steep faces and white creamy tops, are some of the best waves along the Atlantic seaboard. Surfers, body surfers, boogey boarders and children with rafts ride these faces and experience the thrill of riding the wild surf. Cape Hatteras is known as the most consistent surf destination on the East Coast and is renowned as one of the best surfing destinations from New York to Florida. Surfers flock from all over to paddle into some of the best waves of their lives. Luckily, you don’t have to be an expert to paddle out. While some surf spots will have larger waves, almost any beach on Hatteras Island can be the perfect practice area for beginners.
