The Outer Banks' (OBX) Hatteras Island is a watermans paradise. It's the perfect place for all water sports, especially kiteboarding. The wind and weather conditions
are ideal for windsurfing, surfing, and stand up paddleboarding. These options along
with hiking, kayaking, world class charter fishing, shipwreck diving, swimming and
sunbathing, are among the many reasons GLK organizes this trip year after year.
We have plans for two separate trips for Spring Break 2014:
Trip ONE "Family Week" is

Lodging and Weather in April
Price for lodging will be $350 per room for the week. Great Lakes Surf will need
your payment in full by with no exceptions. We typically book the same
houses for this trip year after year. We know the area so well that distance to
kite locations, affordability, cleanliness, and comfort are never a question. We
typically end up renting up to 4 houses and we'll figure out who goes where upon
Did we mention the Atlantic gently roaring to the east and the vast shallow bay
of the Pamlico Sound to the west? Beach front, hot tub, complete kitchens and game
room. Meals are sometimes shared, sometimes private or sometimes at a local restaurant.

2 Very Good Options
Trip ONE - Family Week
Spring Break 2014 (for most) is April
7th - 11th and we invite all families (or those with non-kiting spouses or kids)
to join us for another memorable vacation. Family week is a great addition to the
annual GLK trip. There is plenty to do for everyone from the little ones, to the
teenagers all the way up to the Grandparents. Last year we declared an official
"Family Week" because it was the perfect merging of interests, age groups and friends.
Please consider joining us this year!
Ttip TWO - GLK Week ~ The Tradition Continues
GLK will be doing our annual Kiteboarding trip
absolute blast! Our group logged many miles of epic downwinders on the ocean side
and sound side. Our ocean side downwinders were pretty sick because we would ride
right to our house, grab and beer and jump right into the hot tub....then we would
do it again ;-)!!! The GLK Hatteras trip gets better and better every year mainly
because of the diverse group of people who all have one incredible addiction...Kiteboarding!
