Weekend Kite Fest on OBX
Last night the NE winds filled in; however, it was late in the afternoon and only for the onshore facing beaches. Therefore, choppy/messy wave conditions. No windsurfing, but a lot of kiters filled the ocean waters on the east facing beaches. From Nags Head to Avon, kites were spotted just about everywhere downwinding along the ocean shoreline of the OBX. I even saw yesterday that a few passed in front of the Nags Head Pier cam.
I checked it yesterday around 6:30pm to see if I could get an ocean windsurfing session, but by then the surf was a mess and the winds were straight onshore. Not too much fun for wavesailing, but the kiters were loving it!
Today, it looks like another NE kite day.
