What a great couple of hours we spent wandering the sand dunes at Jockey Ridge State Park in Nags Head NC. They're spectacular and majestic. Beautiful soft sand incredible vistas. Would certainly go back here again and would recommend to everyone. A bit tuff slogging...More

I rented a sandboard back in March from Kitty Hawk Kites. $20 for 4 hours. It was a sunny day after snow and rain the day before. You wax the back of the board each time for it to glide down the dunes. It stayed stuck in place when I didn't apply enough wax or when I wasn't on a steep-enough slope. Kitty Hawk provided the wax.
