Buck Will Take You Surfing

I have made an interesting observation over the past few years.  The nature of my job requires me to see a form of identification from a customer in order to do business with them (rental agreement).  Surprisingly, here on Hatteras Island, one of the eastern most and remote parts of the United States, I see people from not only the most obvious origins like Virginia, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania but very often, Oregon, Florida, California and even Hawaii.  Yes, Hawaii.  What could possibly bring these travelers so far?  The answer is Surfing, Surf and more Surfing.  There is no question that the Outer Banks are fundamentally one of the biggest tourism attractions for surfing enthusiasts.  Several infamous spots such as Rodanthe’s “S-Turns”, the Avon Pier and the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in Buxton have put the Outer Banks on the map as a bonafide venue for this popular activity.  Hatteras Island from top to bottom has a plentiful amount of places to surf.  The greatest allure to these spots are their ability to compliment surfers of all abilities.  The summertime is ideal for beginners to get wet on manageable long board waves.  The fall hurricane swells provide the steep and competitive surf that attracts national interest and some of the most competitive surfers in the sport.  The best part however is that really any time of the year there is a wave for everyone and anyone who has the ambition and desire to do so.  So put your inhibitions aside, take the plunge and join the international brotherhood of surfing.  If I can help, give me a call at 252-995-5868
