ARE YOU READY TO KITEBOARD?
In the early 2000s, Kiteboarding took the wind world by storm. Kiting became established in the industry, and bodies of water that were once dominated by windsurfers became breeding grounds for this new adventurous sport.
With a leading edge inflatable kite, control bar, harness and board, kiting allows you to harness the wind and be as creative as you wish on the water. Jump high, drop into waves, or simply cruise through lakes, rivers and the ocean. Kiting is versatile enough to suit the style of any rider.

KITEBOARDING OR KITESURFING?
Both! Kiteboarding is commonly referred to as kitesurfing, which has evolved into a multi-faceted sport. You will discover a wide range of styles and boards to ride, from twin tips to surfboards and hydrofoils. Here in the Pamlico Sound, the combination of warm waist deep water, steady wind and a sandy ocean floor makes Hatteras Island one of the best places in the world to learn and progress your kiting skills. Depending on the wind direction, you can even take your gear across the street and ride the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
Once we noticed kiting gain traction in the OBX, we opened a Cabrinha certified kite school in Rodanthe, NC. Soon after, we launched an online kiteboarding store dedicated to the best gear in the industry. We offer top-notch kitesurfing gear from some of the most trusted brands in kiteboarding. Shop our ever expanding selection of kiteboarding gear online or visit us at our Kiteboarding Resort for an epic stay at our pristine kite launch.
Learning to kite is truly a life changing experience. We have watched kiteboarding become a lifelong passion for so many people, ourselves included. Join our ever growing community of kiteboarders here at Kitty Hawk Kites and see why year after year, the wind keeps people coming back for more.
