The area of the hub of the Abacos has gone OFF since last night. Waves, good wind, all the necessary food groups for great sessions.

How is it in New Providence and the Exumas?

Just learned of yet another site, possibly with useful weather info not only in the Bahamas but also for getting there.

Wind and pressure

On the Florida Current/Gulfstream

Be sure to animate the charts to help with spotting trends.

Just came across something on the NDBC site. Includes stations worldwide, this view deals with our part of the Basin. It shows view stations within the Bahamas but has some nice offshore stations to the north, west and south to help identify inbound trends.

How bad is the wind there during summer ,Can I get at least 10 Knts everyday?
Checking windguru and windfinder, wind stays in the 15 knots range direction e/se, what's verry good.
Is it right?? or I shoud forget these places since season is over.

I suggested getting in touch with http://www.exumakitesurfing.com/
but apparently they are out of there at that time of year.

Looking at the consistent easterly direction, it looks like they do, weaker ones anyway. The graphs are in mph not knots. It isn't as bad as I thought it would be, looks rideable rigged for light conditions (big board, good sized kite). Each year varies in these strange weather times were in however. A tropical system could increase or completely mess up the winds you see below. You're in prime time for tropical activity in late July and August. Contrary to common belief hurricanes and tropical storms can really mess up kiting (kiters too) at times.
