17th Street Surf Shop is where you’ll find the latest beach, skate park and nightlife fashion trends.  This Outer Banks favorite gets its name from the flagship store's address, which opened at the nearby Virginia Beach oceanfront in 1970.


17th Street Surf Shop has long supported the local surf and skate community, and sponsors local and regional contests in return.  Don’t expect to find a large surfboard selection at the Kill Devil Hills location, this store mostly specializes in surf and skate apparel, swim suits and accessories for men, women (juniors sizes) and children.

You’ll find an extensive collection of Billabong, Volcom, Fox, Quicksilver, Roxy, Element and other popular brands here as well as the store’s own designs. A trip to the beach wouldn’t be complete without a 17th Street Surf Shop t-shirt.

Rash guards, board shorts and skate shoes are also in full supply here. In a pinch, you’ll find surf and skate supplies such as leashes, wetsuits, repair kits and stomp pads, though selection is limited. The store is well organized so you can run in and quickly find surf wax and sunscreen on the way to the beach. You'll find everything you need to wear on vacation, and some water sports equipment at very reasonable prices.

Hatteras Inlet

Hatteras Inlet

The southernmost attraction on Hatteras Island is Hatteras Inlet, and fishermen, mariners, beachcombers, and island lovers all know this area of the Outer Banks shoreline very well. Located approximately half mile past the edge of the populated Hatteras village and the Hatteras/ Ocracoke ferry docks, Hatteras Inlet provides plenty of outdoor entertainment and simply incredible scenery for those who pull up a beach chair, or are just passing through en route to Ocracoke Island or the Gulf Stream.
