September Sessions

September is the perfect time of year to run the event. Our seasons start to change and riders are historically welcomed to Cape Hatteras with strong northeast wind and big swell.

Warm water, hollow barrels, epic wind, and pumping surf are just a few reasons why we love September.

Find out more about why September is our favorite time for kiting and surfing in the Outer Banks.
