bahamas and wind
heya from the gorge,

the bahamas have a rep, at least in this part of the US, as having unreliable wind-may be fine if you live there, but who wants to travel, burn 10d vacation, spend 5 grand and kite a day, maybe two.

now, you may have much more reliable wind than that, i am just talking about the perception. how many days a week are you really killing it?

just my two cents

yea man
some times it's good some times it's bad.
it would be a good idear to check the extended forcast if you are thinking of coming, and book you flights closer to the best wind conditions.
the best wind here is in spring,we have trade winds most year round but they get up set by tropical storms in summer and cold frionts in winter but they are right there.
we had 2 bad summers but the wind has come back for winter.
I could guarantee wind for the month of nov dec and jan for sure.
it's no hood river we don't get 30 kts evry day and it's not dr it dosent get windy at 1pm evry day for the day.
if it's up in the morning it's going to be windy for the day.
the wind tends to come up with the tide as well.
the best thing about riding here is you can ride in wind in any direction.
anyways if your coming down and want some idears on accomidation or my kite caddy service for advanced riders email me
hope that helped ya

It sux here- stay away if you know whats good for you.

(I've sailed everywhere and been skunked more times than you've had hot lunches- including Maui, Aruba, Barbados, PR, DR and the Gorge to name a few. Fact is from Nov. to April here you should kite at least 3-4 days in 7 here on avg.)

Matteo 05-29-2007 08:10 PM

With your weight I would looking for something like a 10-12m. Speak to AJ and he'll hook you up with something.

I only have a 12m C kite which I would not suggest to any beginners.

Anyway, welcome in the Bahamian kiteforum, come and say Hi next time you see us out.
