Boston Globe: Extend summer into fall on Outer Banks

Boston Globe: September 6, 2014

Nothing like a little OBX love from our friends up in New England! Kitty Hawk Kites and Kitty Hawk Surf Co. were recently featured in the Boston Globe as part of a terrific travel story spotlighting some of the top things to see and do while visiting the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Many thanks to the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau for coordinating this opportunity!

A sampling of the love … we couldn’t agree more!

“Kitty Hawk Kites offers bucket-list worthy activities for adventure enthusiasts. Not afraid of heights? Get a bird’s-eye view of the coastline above the Currituck Sound while tandem hang gliding in an ultralight plane. Or learn the fundamentals of kiteboarding with a “fly and ride” class. At Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head, home of what are said to be the highest sand dunes on the East Coast with peaks at more than 90 feet, enjoy paragliding lessons using a glider wing with no rigid frame. Perhaps the ultimate activity for flight enthusiasts — especially recommended in the spring and fall — is to fly a museum-quality reproduction of Orville and Wilbur Wright’s1902 glider. (Average flights are 5 to 15 feet off the ground for approximately 50 yards.) For a thrilling but more passive activity, go parasailing above Sound and Currituck Sound.”
