Bodie Island / Windmill , United States

Shallow waters never more than waist to chest deep, perfect for downwinders from Pleasure Island (private island). You can also do the incredible 3 mile downwinder from the kitebeach to Jocky's Ridge State Park. Smooth waters with very little chop help advance beginners at warp speed. There are three islands just off the shore that are great fun to sail around and over some incredible slicks for super glassy water riding even in higher winds. Most suited for beginners with wide expansive launching beach stretching several hundred feet. The beach is sand and short groomed grass. Butter smooth Southwest and Northwest winds. Some of the best winds on the Outer Banks. The unique micro weather of the site often produces wind where it might be light everywhere else. Prevailing winds are Southwest in the summer and Northeast in the winter. Southwest allows you to get a boat ride up to the famous Pleasure Island launch spot to do a downwinder back to the kitebeach. In June and July 90% wind from SW. Starts at 3pm, strongest at 7pm and lasts until sunset. In August and September the wind is not consistent. In October and November 70% wind. In December to February windy almost daily. In March to May frontals and winds from SW, NW and NE. Main directions: NE and SW.
