We rented kayaks and took one of the kayak tours. Our group size for the tour and needs changed frequently and they were very accommodating. Eddie went above and beyond the call during our tour. Their equipment was plentiful, good quality and good variety. We found everyone more than friendly and helpful. There is no comparison to other places we... More

We rented 2 SUP boards for an hour. It was me and my 10 year old daughter. They have a put in right by the shop, and it's in a pretty protected area, so not too windy. Note that the Buxton location does not have a put in, so you will need to transport the equipment yourself from that location.... More

Our recent kayaking adventures were outstanding! We were provided with 2 single kayaks, paddles, maps and life jackets. We purchased waterproof phone cases and extra water. We packed our own lunch. They put the kayaks in the water at the local creek and off we paddled! Loved every minute and will return on our next visit to Cape Hatteras! Thanks... More

We've been vacationing to Hatteras for multiple years now and every year we have rented many golf carts, kayaks, paddle boards, etc. and pleased with everything about this business. The staff has always been really kind to us every time we've came in to rent something. If you're considering renting anything, I suggest you stop by and check this place... More

We called this place and inquired about renting a golf cart for the week. The lady was extremely rude on the phone. It was just a few minutes past their closing time, come to find out. So, we gave her the benefit of the doubt, and drove to the place of business the following morning to follow through with renting... More

We rented boards for 1 hour and were greeted by a lovely couple. Eddie brought the boards over to the creek for us and gave us some pointers. Took the 12 and 14 yos back two days later so they could give it a try. They were very efficient. We were a large group (6 Paddle boarders and 3 double... More

We did the whole circle, which is about 2 hours. We had a blast, even tho we hit high tide as we had to go under a bridge but we laid back and walk it with our hands and laughed the whole time. Owners are really sweet and accommodating. Kayaks very nice, in good shape, clean and easy to maneuver.... More

We were able to find out about AS Austin when we were looking for places to stay in the Hatteras area. We called and arranged to have a room. You might be surprised when you drive up since it is actually a sports shop -- bikes, surf boards, clothing, etc. However, we were met upon arrival by the owners, Eddie... More

Eddie took 4 of us on a nature tour in their kayaks. We had a great time, saw a lot of wildlife, and Eddie provided history of the area as well. Thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water. We'll come back to Eddie's next year for more.
