A quick report on the First-Annual Hatteras Kite Expo and announcement of the 2012 dates from Nick at Waves Village:
The First Annual Hatteras Kite Expo over Memorial Day weekend went off without a hitch! Pros like Billy Parker joined us at Waves Village Resort for an incredible three-day demo event. Billy helped entertain the crowd when we had light wind. He volunteered to have a jetski tow him up with his kite and drop from 100 feet in the air. A few kite loops later and the crowd cheered for an encore!
Plans for a week-long event next year are already underway, with event dates being shifted back into late April/May. The 2012 KiteWeek & KiteXpo event (to take place April 29 – May 6, 2012) will feature two-day clinics for intermediate riders and the opportunity to “live with the pros” for a week here at the Waves Village Resort condos. The event will include three two-day clinics. Featuring an intro to wakestyle & freestyle, winder woman camp, a strapless clinic, and more to come.

Just more proof that there’s no better place on the Outer Banks to kiteboarding than Waves Village Kiteboarding Resort!
