Kitesurfing - Bahamas



Nassau is the capital city of The Bahamas and is located on the tiny island of New Providence. Although it is less than 150 square miles in area, the island is packed with activities and attractions for visitors to enjoy, not least the blossoming kiteboarding opportunities.


160 miles east of Florida the weather conditions in the Bahamas are perfect for kiteboarding during the windy season (October through June) with steady trade winds and warm, clean, clear water. The teaching area is shallow and flat with an almost constant cross-shore wind. The kitesurf beaches are virtually deserted with less than 20 local riders! Students and riders have all the space they need and want.


Winds in Nassau are warm and steady, with about 20 days a month bringing winds of at least 15 knots during the season. The best time of year for advanced riding is early spring (April/May) when riders can take advantage of stronger winds and awesome wave riding.


The water is in the high 70s (25°C+) year round, so no need for a wetsuit; board shorts and rashy will do the job!


Nassau (NAS): Just hop in a cab and you're a short ride away from your hotel.


Most things on the island are within walking distance or at least within bus/taxi ride. After a long day at the beach Nassau has world class dining and nightlife, where you may spot a celebrity eating at the table next to you, or stumble across a movie or magazine shoot. From the simplest roadside restaurants offering local delicacies at budget prices to gourmet restaurants serving signature cocktails, you can find a meal to suit every taste and budget. For those days when the wind is lighter, or if you just want to take a break, there is always lots to do, from excursions to other islands, deep sea fishing, helicopter rides, diving with sharks or world class golf. Just be sure to book extra excursions early.
