THE LURE

If you were able to custom design a kiteboarding location from scratch, you couldn’t come up with a much better set-up. Hatteras Island, 40 miles off the US mainland (accessible by road bridges), has heaps of locations for flat water and surf kiteboarding. The unique bend in Hatteras island, combined with consistent, clean winds and open access to the water make this place difficult to beat. Imagine shallow water to the horizon in every direction on the sound side (west side of the island) – that’s the Pamlico Sound with flat water riding areas that are waist-deep seven miles out and up to 60 miles north and south. Drop your kite and stand up, or just take a rest – the thousands of newly qualified riders prove that this is without doubt one of the best places to learn. Want waves? Simply hop over the island strip to the east coast. The whole area is home to some of the finest downwinders you could hope for.

All Back again :D

Problem was sat with my internet provider - it appears to be fixed now but nobody is telling me what was wrong so can't share the learning from this.

happy days again!
