If you're in town and interested in seeing surf on the Outer Banks at its finest, just drop by Jennette's Pier in Nags Head. The event's judging stands (tastefully clad in Kitty Hawk Kites and Kitty Hawk Surf Co. regalia, no less) are set up just South of the pier entrance.

And while we're on the subject of kayaking, you may find yourself itching to get a boat of your own. Pop on over to Kitty Hawk Surf Co. and see their huge selection of , Wilderness Systems, Necky, and boats. There's also a used kayak sale going on right now at our Nags Head location in the Jockey's Ridge Crossing center, just across from Jockey's Ridge State Park.

So, good luck to the kayaker competitors. And welcome to the Outer Banks — the perfect surf destination.
