Though slim you could be snow kiting in OBX at that time and the island will be dead with nothing to do but kite or surf. Your wife unless she is a die hard kiter will hate you.
As far as OBX. I'd put your chance of snowkiting at less than 1%. They barely ever get snow, and if they do, it's 1/4".
If you go to OBX in December you are going to need gloves, boots and a hood to kite as well. Water temps are going to be in the upper 40's or lower 50's.
And as Northerner said, there is nobody around there in the winter. Going to OBX for a kite trip in the end of December would definitely be a complete dissapointment. If you can change to September or October, then you'd be all set. All the summer crowds are gone and you get wind almost every day with maybe no need for wetsuits.
