A Roanoke Sound Weekend Adventure

October 22, 2021 | Fishing

I’m not a world traveler. I have nothing against those who are. It’s just that I’ve never had the time or money to go very far from home. Plus, Kitty Hawk Watersports exists to ensure other travelers make the most of their travel to the Outer Banks. Still, I do sometimes enjoy a Roanoke Sound weekend adventure. One trip, in particular, comes to mind.

Jet Ski Rental and a Foreign Exchange Student: A Love Story

August 16, 2021 | Jet Ski Rental

I’ve had many great employees at Kitty Hawk Watersports over the years, but one, in particular, was one of my favorites. It’s not because he was a hard worker, although he was. And it’s not because he was a nice guy, although he was. He was one of my favorites because he spent every day of the summer soaking in the Outer Banks experience. He was in love with Outer Banks and intentional about every moment, even when it came to jet ski rental.

Top 5 Songs for Watersports

February 25, 2018 | Jet Ski Rental

Watersports vary in pace, energy, and in the adrenaline rush they evoke. They all have their own special rhythm and type of music that goes perfectly with them. I sometimes hear songs in the wintertime, and they immediately take my mind to a moment in the summer when we were on the water having fun.

For example, when I start pulling a water-skier at Kitty Hawk Watersports here in the Outer Banks, I instantly hear the Rolling Stones in my mind.
