DARE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — Many Dare County residents have steered clear of the beaches as the tropical storm warning remains in effect. However, there are some that have opted to be on the beach during this time. Including some kite surfers who a WAVY crew captured out on the water Friday morning. View the video in the player above.

Currently, there are “no swimming” flags flying on the beach due to dangerous rip currents and high surf, and residents are advised to stay off the beaches until the storm has passed.
