Default Grand Bahama

Hi,
Hope you are all doing good!
I will be visiting Grand Bahama this week end. Do you guys know about any good place to kite there?
Hopefully I will as lucky as the last time I visited Nassau
(forecast doesn't look so promising)

Tony

Summer is coming to be sure. Already starting to get excited about 15 mph days.

Hi, I didn't get much luck with the wind but the island and nearby reef is great. Saw some amazing corals and fishes.

I will definitely will look into a trip there on a Southerly strong forecast.

Sorry about the wind. Picking times with strong southerly winds can be tricky particularly this year. They occur but with less regularity than say northerly winds in frontal season.

The reefs are nice over there. I hope to put together a nice write up with stills and video on some of the reefs along the Sea of Abaco next month.
