Over the past 40 years, I have visited KHK in several of their locations many times. The selection is always good and fresh. Prices are comparable to other area stores. The stores are clean and neat and the employees are friendly.

We enjoyed a quick stop here. They had great t-shirts. Prices were a bit high. We brought kites from home and were glad because it was much lower cost. The staff was very nice.

Our family just decided at the last minute to go paddle boarding. It was our first time and Kitty Hawk Kites was able to accommodate our party of 8 with no problem. Great service!

We stopped and watched the kite boarders at Kitty Hawk Kites on our trip down the Outer Banks. There were many people there taking lessons. Recommend it even if you are just observing.
