Visit Nor'Banks Sailing & Watersports on social media:





Nor’Bank’s Sailing & Watersports staff, equipment and location make them one of the premier water sports centers on the Outer Banks. Their friendly and professional staff make your visit with them both safe and fun. Their equipment is in outstanding condition and is kept to the highest safety standards. Nor’Banks sound front location has a grassy lawn, restrooms, showers, 200 foot pier and plenty of room for you to spend the day. Nor’Banks says its location, on the Currituck Sound just south of Sanderling, is ideal for water sports, “with low boat traffic, warm water, a sandy bottom and steady breezes!”

Sailing was Nor’Banks first water sports activity when they opened in 1979. They continue to have one of the finest sailing operations on the Outer Banks (if not the whole East Coast). They offer rentals of Flying Scots, Hobie Cats, Weta Trimarans and Topaz Sailboats. They also provide quality sailing instruction by US Sailing Instructors for all ages. “Go Sailing” is their very popular private lesson program which is a perfect introduction to Sailing for individuals, couples or the whole family. They also offer a US Sailing Certification Program and Youth Sailing Camps.

Nor’Banks has expanded over the years and now offers one of the most complete water sports centers on the Outer Banks. This is truly "one stop shopping" for water sports! Their wave runner rentals boast new equipment every year and a strong commitment to your fun and safety. They also offer parasailing (Duck’s oldest running parasailing operation), kayaking (rentals and eco-tours), towing trips (wake boarding, waterskiing and tubing), SUP (rentals, clinics and eco-tours) and pontoon boat rentals.

Stand-up Paddle boarding (SUP) has become one of the most popular and fastest growing water sports in the country and Nor’Banks is a great place to paddle board. They offer rentals, clinics and eco-tours. Their location is ideal for learning to paddleboard with shallow, warm water and a sandy bottom.

Captain Dan and Crew are back this year with their Tubing, Waterskiing and Wake Boarding boat. This is a great family friendly activity taking groups out tubing, wake boarding and/or water skiing. Captain Dan and his crew are fantastic.

Nor’Banks also hosts Sailing and SUP events throughout the season. Check their events calendar on their website atwww.norbanks.com.
