Outer Banks Kiteboarding

You Gotta See This

Outer Banks kiteboarding is a sport that will mesmerize those who happen to witness it. It is a sport that combines sheer athleticism with artistry in the air.

My first experience with kiteboarding happened while I was sitting on the beach with my daughter, Kimmy, and her friend. A guy I met earlier in the day at the Pea Island Art Store asked me to help him launch his kite. I looked around and didn’t know what he was talking about until he pulled it out of his backpack. We did manage to help him launch it, and off he went into the ocean. My first reaction, as I watched him take off, was that he was crazy, which changed to amazement, and finally sheer appreciation for his athleticism as he twirled and flipped in the air. It was an amazing thing to witness.

Another place to witness Outer Banks kiteboarding is on the sound between Avon and Buxton. During our trip to see the Cape Hatteras lighthouse in the summer of 2009, we happened across this area. There must have been about 15 kiteboarders out on the sound twisting and twirling in the air. It was quite the show.

We bring you the next best thing here. Check out these videos of these flying, athletic artists.
