Pole Surfer's Got Nice Moves

Now that even 4k cameras and drones are commonplace and affordable, there are so many great windsurfing videos available. Most just get posted to a forum post but every once in a while, a really good one comes along that not only should you watch, but watching on a big enough screen makes it so much better. I caught this one last night on our TV (Youtube app on Roku). It's a gem: humor, great shots, appropriate soundtrack. It ticks all the boxes.

Oh, apologies to our kite brethren. After taking a few humorous jabs over the years from you guys/gals, this one gives a couple of good natured ones back.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present: The Best of Windsurfing (Kickboxer Edition).

Getting out for the first time (or first time in a while)?

Here's a great video by Jem Hall to help you start out. All his videos are great and he has tutorials all the way up the learning curve.

Motivation

I found this video the other night. What a wonderful bit of motivation for all of us. Now that it's getting warmer, I hope we all take the opportunity to try new things whether its just getting comfortable on a board or trying an advanced move. Have fun!

Outer Banks Spring 2018

Outer Banks Spring 2018

Again this Spring we’ve rented a 5-bedroom house at the same great waterfront location. We have plenty of space because 4 of our regular guests have either moved out of area, or can’t come due to conditions of employment.

Reservations:
The price per week is - $400 single and $450 per couple. Call either Barrett or Peggy with questions. To reserve please send your check to Barrett & Peggy Walker. Our contact and address information is listed at the bottom of the flyer.

Gear Rentals:
Most guests bring their own gear, but you can conveniently rent from OceanAir (252) 995-5000). Brian, the shop owner, lives next door to our house. Ocean Air is a full service shop for windsurfing, kiting, and paddle boarding. In May Kitty Hawk Watersports opens one mile from our house. The second shop rents and gives beginner windsurfing and paddle board lessons. There are many rental locations for surfing, bicycles, kayaks, and other gear. Want to try surfing, but don’t have your own board? Rent from Cavalier Surf Shop, about a mile from the house. Kitty Hawk Kites gives hang gliding lessons nearby on the sand dunes were the Wright Brothers first flew.

Foiling:
Last Fall three guests successfully foiled from the house. The water is chest-deep if you walk your gear out and avoid sailing near the islands.
