Get Ready for OBX-Wind 2019

Outer Banks Events

Planning a visit to the Outer Banks this April? You’re in for a treat! The annual OBX-Wind event is taking place this year from April 13th to the 20th.

Watch some of the country’s best slalom, freestyle and long-distance windsurfing over the course of several action-packed days, capping off with a closing party and awards ceremony at local favorite Madd Crabber on April 20th. This year, OBX-Wind will be hosting the United States Nationals for freestyle, so you know you’ll be in for an exciting spectacle.

If you attend the event, make sure to purchase some raffle tickets! An impressive selection of prizes includes slalom boards, race sails, windsurf accessories and more.

All races will take place at OceanAir Sports in Avon, North Carolina. OceanAir Sports is the primary sponsor of the event, along with the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

If you’re interested in racing yourself, act fast! Event organizers anticipate that all 300 racing spots will be filled, so register today for slalom or long-distance racing. Test your skills alongside some of the top windsurfers out there and enter for the chance to win amazing prizes.
