Hatteras/SPI/HoodRiver - Kiting vacations for Sept/Oct

Postby adseguy » Mon Jul 15, 2013 7:17 pm

Hey guys,

So I want to see if I can bum onto anyone's trip to anywhere where there's wind. I probably won't be able to make my usual trip out to Hatteras this year, but seeing if anyone is going to Florida this winter or SPI/Hatteras at a different time. If you are interested I could setup a trip out to Hatteras for end of September. Rent a big 6-8 bedroom house fill it up and ride the sound or wave sides all day long. Cost is around $200-$250/person for the whole week at a time. If interested just leave a little post or if you have ?'s just let me know. I'm just posting to gauge some interest

Was in the process of setting up a trip to Copper Harbor, MI for that time. There is plenty of wind up there come fall if you down mind wearing your wetsuit. Worse case scenario if the wind doesn't show up you can go mountain biking on their world class downhill single tracks.

Really like the idea and thanks, but if I'm going to travel that far, I'd rather go warmer. Hope it works out for yah!

Really?!??! No one has plans for a kite trip for the next six months?....and no one is interested in one?

Kiting by myself is never fun.

I should have bumped this for a few weeks. I've made plans now for a trip to Punta Cana with my wife. Cabarete will be a stop for sure.

I'm planning a trip to Corpus Christi this Christmas. When I lived down there, Corpus had more consistent wind, and stronger winds than south padre. Given, SPI is a little nicer, there are more locations and spots to kite up north. Just FYI in case anyone was interested.

Any other planned trips coming up? Mike (wawazat) mentioned OBX and/or SPI in the coming months. Just seeing if anyone else has kiting destinations in mind. Preferably on the cheap...

Alright, after a bad season kiting having a jumpers knee I think I will be in for an OBX trip. I've been looking at flights to New Bern, NC - EWN $273 10/17 - 10/20. If any one has some cheap space available please let me know!

Edit- Was looking at AirBnB https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/86171

Not a bad deal.
