It’s been an active kiteboard spring with plenty of wind and warm conditions. The month started out with North America’s largest event The Triple S, at REAL Watersports, bringing in the top riders from all over the globe. The warm south west winds have made ocean kiting fantastic, and allowed us to enjoy no wet suits starting the first day in June. On your next pilgrimage for wind to the Outer Banks, make sure to swing by to get your caffeine boost before you hit the water.
Fishing around the sandbar has been good and picking up rapidly. We’ve seen a ton of Mahi and Wahoo’s brought in to the dock, along with stories of Marlin showing up in the gulf stream. With the Big Rock Tournament starting on Monday, the 10th, boats from all over are flocking to the area for their chance to win the million dollar prize. Check out http://www.thebigrock.com for more info. We’ll also extend our hours until 5 pm starting the same day the tournament starts so you can grab something to drink before heading over to see the daily catch!
With the arrival of warmer weather also comes live music. Every Tuesday night is open mic night at Hatteras Sol Deli and Café, and every Wednesday is live music on the deck at Hatteras Landing. This past Sunday, Grant Austin Taylor, 18 year old from Norfolk, VA, put on a killer show as the sun went down over the bay. Swing by the Turtle and check out the corkboard for upcoming events.
Thanks for tuning into the this month’s Island News!
