Windsurfing Lessons

Located at the Outer Banks, one of the best windsurfing places in the country, Kitty Hawk Watersports has the gear and the expertise to get you windsurfing! Windsurfing is a unique sport that combines the adventure and style of surfing with the strategy of sailing. Windsurfing is growing in popularity because windsurfers have the advantage of being able to use their sails to move quickly toward a large wave that surfers—who can only paddle with their hands—don’t have.

Windsurfing Rentals

Take a rental out today and you will see why more and more people are getting hooked on windsurfing! According to what you need, you can rent the board with the rig, or just the board or the rig for as little as a three hours or as long as a day.

We rent Roberto Ricci Design (RRD) boards and Ezzy sails—both high quality brand names—for the adults, and also have smaller boards and rigs for kids. Choose from a variety of boards, including the longboard that popularized windsurfing in the ‘80s or our tandem windsurfing board, the Starboard Gemini. The Gemini is a great way to enjoy an afternoon on the sound with a friend or to take one of your children out with you.

Hit the Waves with an Instructor

Don’t have a clue how to windsurf? No problem. We have professionally-trained instructors that offer both individual and group lessons. We have thoughtfully planned our lessons to introduce you to the sport in a few manageable steps.

We begin on the ground by discussing basic wind theory and then having you try our simulator, which will give you a feel for windsurfing before you actually try it. The next step is getting in the water at Roanoke Sound and applying everything you just learned. Our instructors will be available to provide expert advice and tips as you enjoy the serene Roanoke Sound.

An individual windsurfing lesson lasts 1.5 hours, and the group lessons last 2.5 hours. Both of the costs include equipment rental.
