Cape Hatteras Wind Season?


Hi All!

Could anyone recommend a range of when Hatteras is windy? Would the last week of April be too early?

Thanks!

I've been down there in April and May. I prefer May as the temps are likely to be a lot warmer. Both months can give you pretty reliable wind, and the houses are still at off-season rates until late May.

I like April for the wind but it can be chilly but a 3/5 wetsuit is more than enough for me. Not busy is also a bonus compared to May. Kim and I are heading down on the 3rd for 2 weeks. emoticon

Just watch out for Genie, a 2300lb great white, pinged in Pamlico Sound a few days ago.

From her picture, she looks hungry.

Didn't see her and I was in water less than 1 foot most times so she would be beached. The sounds was really shallow. It made for some sweet butter spray sessions.

She's a beast!

What spots do you recommend kiting at/ where do you usually kite?

Thanks!
