Well what can I say....just returned from one of the sweetest places on Earth to kite.
The conditions on the OBX truly are EPIC


Waves on the Atlantic side and 50m away you have waist deep warm flat water.....for miles and miles!
This is also home to the slicks..like below..



The accomodation can be the usual house like below to appartments like the ones at Real and Kitty Hawk



The ocean side...



The Sound side....It's shallow like that for litterally miles out!



We'd prob go around mid to late May before the season really kicks off and prices go up.
Just let us know if interested as we'd just need to have a rough idea of numbers!

This is just some of the gear we had on loan from Epic for the week with the man!
Quite an experience riding with Dimitri in his own back garden and boosting on the slicks.

It was truely an awsome week, it was mad being able to see someone kiting and then being able to stand up at least a mile out!

A rough price for a trip to OBX, for 2 weeks is, £1000. This includes flights, accomodation, car hire and a small amount for a food kitty as it costs £10-£20 pp to eat eat out.
This price is based on the exchange rate at the moment.

I have to say I'd be well up for a trip to Hatteras at that price. When are you going back?

Sorry fella, been busy......So much video to sort through lol

Actually we were thinking of next year....Unless enough interest in a trip in October (I think there is a Epic Dealer trip planned again for then)

It's best to avoid the summer as very hot and humid and a heap of midges!

We have had a whole lot of interest in this trip, the numbers will be limited so it will be first come first serve. We will be taking deposits at the end of the year when we reserve the accommodation. Can't wait to return to this awsome spot! :-)
