The guys at Hatteras Island Boardsports take the art of surfing very seriously. They offer everything you need to learn or continue to enjoy a sport in which you already are experienced. Two brothers - Kevin and Drew - spent their summers vacationing on the island and felt so connected, after college they returned and opened up the surf shop.


You can buy or rent everything you need to ride the famed Hatteras Island waves, and they offer a variety of lessons for the beginner on up in private or group sessions. The 2-hour sessions are spent almost entirely in the water. And while these seasoned folk know it takes tons of experience to get good, they are excited to offer lessons by pros that will have you learning the basics in a snap. Don't have a board? No worries! They will supply one. Water too cold? They will throw in a wetsuit.



Shop the store for a wide variety of clothing - men's and women's - plus they have many surfboards and accessories from which to choose. They stock 17 brands of surfboards alone including Aloha, NSP and Walden.

Decades ago, one of the only ways to access some of the most secluded areas of the Outer Banks was via a ferry, and this tradition carries on today for thousands if not millions of visitors who want to travel to some of coastal North Carolina's most famous and off-the-map locales.
