Wind is a dominant and driving force at the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. It shapes the islands and the trees and changes the disposition of the water, the air, and the humans every time it switches direction. Wind affects the quality of the day for everyone on the Outer Banks who does anything outdoors. This is why kiteboarding and windsurfing are so popular here. With just a kite or a sail, you can harness that ever-present wind and let it work for you. Kiteboarding and windsurfing are part of the culture on Hatteras Island. If you look toward the sound on any windy day, you’ll see kiteboarders and windsurfers in action. Colorful crescent-shaped kites hover in the air above the water, while bright triangular-shaped sails zip back and forth on the water’s surface.
