If you've always dreamed of riding the waves and the wind, then make your Outer Banks vacation the perfect excuse to pick up a new watersport via a number of rentals and lessons available throughout the coastline.
Local businesses that provide watersport rentals and lessons like Hatteras Island Boardsports or OceanAir Sports offer hourly or daily rentals for a number of different types of equipment, including surfboards, kiteboarding gear, windsurfing rigs, and even stand up paddle boards for visitors to take out to the open water and get their toes wet in a new sport.
For a little guidance on where to start, these same businesses offer seasonal lessons to learners of all skill levels, in group sessions or private one-on-one tutorials. Take full advantage of the Outer Banks' miles of water, and be sure to schedule a rental or lesson for the sport of your choice. Surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding and stand up paddle boarding are all celebrated on these islands, and visitors and newcomers are always welcome to join in the fun.
