mikeleg Thanks for the info James. Windfest sounds great. I'll make sure to negotiate having that week off in my new contract.

James Hatteras is great. The main season is April through October.

Ocean Air Watersports in Avon is the biggest shop in the area, and I know they do lessons. http://www.oceanairsports.com/school...TOKEN=93558845
I think some of the other shops do lessons, too, so you might want to shop around.

I don't know about hotels in the area because I've always camped when I go there. There's a cheap campground on the sound in Rodanthe http://www.watersportsandcampground.com/ that I usually stay at. There's a shop in Rodanthe that rents gear but I don't know if they do lessons or not. http://www.hiss-waves.com/

During "windfest" in April, I stay futher south at Frisco Woods Campground, where the demo events and festivities are. Windfest 2008 is April 17th - 19th. http://www.outer-banks.com/friscowoods/ Roger Jackson and Ellen Faller bring vans full of new starboard boards to demo. It's awesome.

Hatteras advice please

Hi Everyone,

I'm up for a new job, and I'm thinking of treating myself to a windsurfing vacation if I get it. I'm on the East coast, so I'm thinking of heading down to Hatteras. I started windsurfing this summer, and I would classify myself as an intermediate. Can anyone suggest where to stay and rent gear, best time to go, etc... I'm particularly interested in lessons. I'm working on carving through my jibes and being more consistent with water starts. Any recommendations for schools/instructors? Any recos for other areas of the world would be appreciated as well.

thanks,

Mike
