Head to Hatteras Island for one of the biggest windsurfing events in the country with the annual OBX Wind Competition. Held on multiple days during one of the prime local seasons for wind-based watersports, this incredible series of events will entice windsurfers of all skill levels to meet and mingle with their colleagues, have some fun on the water, and enjoy a race or two that is truly challenging, engaging, and which can only be found on the Outer Banks.

The week-long OBX Wind festival features a number of corresponding activities and events, which includes a wide range of clinics for windsurfers of all skill levels, (including advanced sessions with professional riders), tons of demo gear for windsurfers to try, multiple freestyle and other competitions, and one of the largest long-distance races on Hatteras Island and miles beyond. In fact, in previous years, the event had more than 180 windsurfing competitors! Based in the Island Creek area of Avon behind OceanAir Sports on Hatteras Island, which is well known as a popular community for watersports fans, this inclusive and engaging windsurfing event is a great way to enjoy everything that the island has to offer when it comes to miles of room to roam on the open Pamlico Sound waters.
