OBX or Keys?

Did your time away from the rat race serve you well? Don't hold out on the crew. Post the details so we can rent the room you trashed last week.

There will be a fall getaway to OBX (Hatteras). The kiteriders crew (Madison, WI) usually heads it up. They've done it so many years now that it's down to a science on where to stay, what to eat, where to kite, etc. Been there twice and can't wait to go again this year :) That's my .02

Madcrew have 1-2 houses and there are rooms availible. they are fun and you can learn from them too. just make sure you pair up with someone at ur level.
Last fall i think 3 or 4 houses were avalible for Chicago crew

How does one score an invite to a trip like this?

Bob at Kiteriders in Madison is the connection on the trips to Hatteras, check with him for buying gear from a local shop as well. :wink:

Or, just find out when they are going, and check Hatteras Realty website for tons of houses available, and pretty cheap. Remember, fall is out of season for beachgoers, and it is pretty empty there, except for kiters and windsurfers. I went 10+ times, and always had an excellent place to leave with buddies, even when booked pretty late.
