Windsurfing - Avon is one of the best places in the nation to windsurf
The beaches here are perhaps the nicest on Hatteras Island. Most oceanfront cottages are either on or very close to the dunes, providing beach views and short walks to the water. Bring your bikes (or rent them from places like Ocean Atlantic Rentals or Island Cycles). You can bike the entire village in minimal time on Highway 12. Browse or take a class at Studio 12 while you're there, too! For world-renowned windsurfing, Canadian Hole is only two minutes south of Avon. Bring your boards or come to watch the thrill and beauty of hundreds of windsurfers shredding the wind.
