What’s Happening on the OBX this week
This week is my top week of activities we have had all Summer long. With two of my favorite surfing events on the Outer Banks being in the same week, along with outdoor movies and more this all makes for a great week to be on the Outer Banks.
August 22-23 l Jennette’s Pier l Nags Head, NC
This is a 2 day long event put together to bring awareness to Autism/Asperger’s. Starting with a meet and greet dinner Friday night and flowing right into a day of surfing on Saturday. Each child with Autism with be paired with 2 surf instructors and a teacher/physical therapist who understands the special needs.
August 22 l College of Albemarle campus l Manteo, NC
Movies on the Sound is a Summer long series that plays outdoor movies from Duck to Manteo. For the month of August, the outdoor movies will be played at the College of the Albemarle Campus. Tonights movie, FROZEN! I know, exciting right? Bring some beach chairs, a blanket or two, pack a cooler and bring the whole family.
August 23-24 l Farm Dogs Surf School l Nags Head, NC
Weekend of surf competitions, races and clinics. This contest is open for beginners to professionals and is meant to grow the paddling community on the Outer Banks. More advanced paddlers have an opportunity to surf Outer Banks waves in a competitive setting.

All Summer long, Scarborough Faire, located in the heart of Duck, puts together Faire Day Festival every Wednesday. Free admission for the family. Live music, glitter tattoos, DIY arts and craft, face painting, juggling and more. All located under the beautiful tree covered walkways of some of the hottest shopping centers in Duck.
August 28 l Jennette’s Pier l Nags Head, NC
A men’s qualifying competition of the ASP tour. This is the first of three new events tied to Vans Pro at ECSC. This competition is a great way for our local surfers to compete and get some points on the board to maybe one day make it to the international arena with surfers like Slater, Fanning, and Parko. This event is free and open to the public.
