No matter what direction winds come from - you will get the most of it at the Canadian hole. Although not the place with most flat water around the Hatteras spots , it is the best for the clean and strong wind!

You can rent different water sports items from Ocean Atlantic Rentals in Avon, right up the road. I believe single kayaks rent for the week starting at $69.
