SUP-A Great Way to Tour the Outer Banks

SUP-Stand Up Paddleboarding has become one of the most popular water sports going in the past five or six years. Easy to learn with options for users from a relaxing paddle on flat water to riding the surf along the ocean, the it seems like people are out on SUPs everywhere along the Outer Banks.

Kitty Hawk Kites sponsored the SUPtastic race today, a three mile loop around Roanoke Island Festival Park. Starting at the bridge to the park, paddlers circled Ice Plant Island, which is where the Park is located.

For most of the participants, once around was fine; for the more hardcore competitors, a second trip around the island brought the race to a six mile distance.

Kitty Hawk Kites is probably has the largest inventory of rental boards around, but there are a lot of Outer Banks businesses offering SUP lessons, rentals and sales-too many to list them all here.
