Currituck OB Spotlight: Flying Smiles

April 30, 2012
Around here, the saying “Go fly a kite” is definitely not an insult, but a great suggestion. When you visit the Currituck Outer Banks you’ll find the beaches offer opportunities for all sorts of fun. Swimming, surfing, sandcastles, beach volleyball are all great activities, but the OBX is also known as the birthplace of flight. It’s only proper that you send at least one kite into the air while you’re here, and Flying Smiles Kites is one stop you should make in town.

When you walk into their Corolla, NC store, you’ll discover that the good folks at Flying Smiles take kite-flying seriously. You won’t just find the standard diamond-shapes style here, but a wide array of single-line, dual-line, and quad-line kites, kites with and without streaming tails, kites that resemble colorful snowflakes and dragons, and kite parts for the pro flyer. If you’re looking for a kite with a wingspan as long as you are tall, you’re likely to find it here!

Now, if the wind doesn’t want to cooperate while you’re over here, no need to worry. Flying Smiles is a veritable family fun headquarters – check out their selection of jigsaw puzzles and games to enjoy after the beach, perfect for taking back to the hotel or vacation home rental.

Flying Smiles is also happy to ship orders for kite enthusiasts. You can contact them via their website or call 252-453-8442 and they’ll find what you need to take to the skies.
