One of the all time best windsurfing/kitesurfing shops you’ll find anywhere. We’ve been regular customers since they opened about 20 years ago. Once again this year they helped us select replacements for broken/lost gear. One windless day I had fun renting a very long speedy paddleboard. This is our “go to” place to buy what we need because of the expert advice, friendly atmosphere, great selection (used as well as new) and fair prices. While staying nearby I lost a rigged sail in a storm. A local fisherman who they helped out once found it and returned it. I am/we are so lucky they are still in this business and so involved in the community. Whether you are experienced or just getting started, Brian and his staff will take good care of you. There is no better spot for lessons or just cruising on your favorite watercraft. Shallow beautiful Pamlico sound is right out the back door. Great place to rent kayaks too. If you are planning a trip to this part of the Cape Hatteras, start here!

My family and I took beginner windsurfing lessons today with Graham. He was an excellent instructor. He took good care of my youngest daughter who is 10 years old. This was her first time windsurfing and she was actually doing it within a few minutes. I also have a 14-year-old daughter and a 17-year-old daughter with some experience windsurfing. He gave them some good pointers and they got some good practice in as well. My wife rented a kayak and took pictures of us as we were all having fun. I would definitely highly recommend this operation. Thanks for a great afternoon.

Perfect place to rent kayaks for a few hours. They are right in the sound and put everything in the water for you! They gave wonderful tips on where to go and I do on the wind. Kayaks were really comfortable and had great seats on them that you can adjust! Very professional and attentive! They also have paddle boards if some in your group would rather do that. We rented 3 doubles and a single and went right out of the little bay they’re in. Followed the coast and stopped at a couple hidden beaches. Great day!!

Great experience with Ocean Air. Employees and equipment were great!!!! Very helpful and knowledgeable. We rented two double kayaks, one family sized paddle board, a couple wind surfboards/sails for our family group of 13, ages 10-50 with lots of teenagers. They are located right on the sound. They had everything set up for us and we got started right from their deck and stairs into the water so no need to transport any of the gear in a car or van. Location of the shallow sound combined with the easy launching of the boards and kayaks made for an amazing day for our family! Highly recommended.
