November Sessions

Every session is right outside your doorstep at Watermens Retreat!

Weather Overview
November sees some great conditions in Cape Hatteras, NC. November is known for stronger winds, pumping surf and moderate temperatures. As we head into November, predominant wind (and swell) direction switches firmly to the north and northeast. We still get the occasional SW and SE winds which bring warmer temps and water. Air temps range from the 50’s up to the 70’s. Water is in the 50’s and 60’s with a 3/2mm or 4/3mm fullsuit being the call. Compared to the Mid Atlantic and Northeast, we are about 6 weeks behind your temps heading into the winter…..which means “Indian Summer” last longer on the Outer Banks!

For the month of November, REAL will offer our entire REAL Camp Program at a special price. SAVE on REAL Kite, Surf and SUP Camps, plus REAL Custom Camps! REAL is ranked among the Top 10 Adventure Camps in the World by Outside Magazine. REAL will also host several camps over Thanksgiving week to perfectly compliment your holiday travel plans! Space is limited, so book TODAY to guarantee availability.

Enjoy all of this at Watermen’s Retreat for as little as $99/night!

Watermen’s Retreat
Stay onsite at Watermen’s Retreat , WINNER of the Outer Banks Parade of Homes. 2 and 3 bedroom luxury condominiums located waterfront at The Slick. Basing your Cape Hatteras vacation at Watermen’s adds a long list of amenities and conveniences. Watermen’s guests enjoy a private kite launch with 4 acres of Bermuda grass, outdoor music, air compressors and the “The Slick” right outside their door. Surfers will appreciate the heated outdoor showers, custom board storage and local knowledge to put you on the best session every day. Traveling with a larger group? You can rent an entire floor of Watermen’s (up to 12 bedrooms) and enjoy the company, but also “retreat” for some privacy when needed.

Battle of the Banks Barrel Frenzy!

Battle of the Banks : October 15th – December 1st
The Battle of the Banks is an annual surf contest that throws in the best surfers of the OBX against the best surfers of Virginia Beach, cage match style! With a 6-week waiting period spanning the month of November, you know the conditions will be epic when this contest goes off. Known for some of the best beach break barrels in the world, Cape Hatteras in November provides the traveling surfer with the destination surf experience of a lifetime.

Thanksgiving Weekend at REAL and Watermen’s Retreat
Looking for the ULTIMATE Thanksgiving Holiday? Thanksgiving is a great time to visit Cape Hatteras! Get together with friends and family. TAKE SESSIONS and feast yourself on turkey and pumpkin pie! There’s no better place to cook and enjoy your meal than in the waterfront condominiums at Watermen’s Retreat. Take in the game on Watermen’s giant flat screen TVs with Bose surround sound. Since Watermen’s sits right on top of the action, taking a session means you’ll only be gone a few hours. Watermen’s Retreat is FAMILY FRIENDLY and brings your entire group into the action regardless of their skills on the water. Enjoy your meal while enjoying an absolutely breathtaking sunset over the Pamlico Sound. This is what holidays SHOULD be like. Big Sessions and BIGGER turkeys!
