Norfolk/Virginia Beach is another "city" close to OBX. Decent kiting in VB itself. About 1.5 hour drive to kitty hawk, 2.5 hours drive to Waves where the good kiting is on the Outer Banks. Close enough for day trips!redman333 wrote:I live a couple hours south of OBX and am there all summer.
I kite 2-3 times a week average in Virginia Beach, but you need lightwind gear for that. Not nearly as windy here as OBX, but OBX is really close.
Ride all year in a wetsuit. Water goes down to 45F in the winter. Lots of days with air temp 50+ even in January and February.
If you can go anywhere though, Puerto Rico or Hawaii sure would be nice
