Head to the waves of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore to catch this epic competition that combines powerful waves with incredible athletic ability. The Cape Hatteras Wave Classic is a waves-focused kiteboarding event that features some of the best conditions for incredible action along the Hatteras Island beaches.

The multiple-day event is held in mid-September, which is the ideal time of year for pumping surf and ideal wind speeds. As a result, the local Cape Hatteras shoreline sets the stage for kiteboarding pros from all over the world to put their wave riding and aerial skills on full display. The event is sponsored by Patagonia, and is open to anyone who wants to compete on the local waves. The event is divvied into two divisions – Men’s Open and Women’s Open – and the registration fee covers the contest entry, as well as a special Welcome Dinner and Opening Party, an Awards Banquet and Ceremony, and a Cape Hatteras Wave Classic event T-shirt. With big cash prizes for the winners, and an incredible show for any and all spectators who head to the beach, this competition is a must-see display of incredible feats on the ocean waters by some of the top boarders in the world.
