Hi Simi,

There is no one part of Nassau, actually the island of New Providence, that is good for winds from all directions. At Cable Beach you are near two spots along the NW coast, Go Slow and the beach just south of it that work for sectors of W to N to NNE to varying degrees. Both should work for your girlfriend too. Trouble is usually, these are wind directions for cooler months during fronts. In May the fronts should be easying out replaced by far lighter summer wind patterns outside tropical systems. May is usually a bit early from much tropical activity, which I would be thrilled to miss hurricane activity another year from. In summer winds may be more E to SE. This means driving west and then south to Blue Hill on the south central shore. AJ has the local school and can help you out with more info closer to that time. Winds usually are light in later May, this year, no one knows. Weather patterns are changing. It should be warm and sunny however, lots to do on NP aside from kiting on the plus side. More about kiting on the island at: http://fksa.org/showthread.php?t=4147

Definitely hook up with AJ Watson of Cross-shore.com. He lives in Nassau. He'll give you the info about where to kite, winds, what to do on the island.
