I lived waterfront on the york river in yorktown and there are certainly days that you can ride there. You need a strong west or NW wind for the york river. March - May and sept - oct. Have the best chance for good conditions there. Monitor the forcast for the yorktown coat gard station bouy, which is the best indicator for wind there. There was a station on the coleman bridge, but the last hurrine toasted that station. Ive also kited the north shore of va beach, but water access isnt easy to find.
I drive to obx every couple of weeks with a couple buddies, one lives in waynesboro and the other in DC. We camp in waves to keep the trips economical all summer and we welcome new friends if you want to join us. 757-715-3307
