watering holes/bars local kiteboarding info in Nassau Bahamas

There are plenty watering holes in Nassau depending on if you have a champane taste with beer pockets or visa versa..we locals like quench our thirst at a bar called the green parrot on the Nassau side good food good drinks plenty hot chicks..

Then, if you could just give me some rough prices/costs on these three things that would be great:
Riding conditions: most of the time riding in Nassau we ride in a flat water area with the wind cross-shore to side on shore the wind in season is 15-18 knots higher with incoming cold fronts 20-30kts locals call it Blue hill, the name of the beach is south beach..water temp in the high 70’s F.
The best tide to ride in is a out going tide (butter flat) the difference in tide from high to low is 3-4 feet depening on spring high or spring low tide or full moon.
(the place shallows out to nothing at low tide so you have to walk out to the right about 600 yards to get calf depth water.
The beach is prity small but there is heaps of space to ride the flat water area is about 1000 meters out by 6000 meters long..best wind direction would be ENE to East.
The area is good from ene to SW.
If the wind switches to the west or North  to North east we ride an area called “goodmans bay” cable beach..choppy deap water ..waves on the outer reef and we also have a spot call “goslow bend” the jewel in the Bahamian kite crown flat water with sick little kickers coming through.
It can be crowded at “goslow” if there is more than 5 riders out..if you cant do tricks on left side you have to stay out of the slick and stay down wind or way up wind..(local educate)

The average cost of a beer in a bar: $2.00
The average cost of a meal in a restaurant (no alcohol):$10.00 for a burger and frys..
$6-$8 for a conch salad
The average cost of a single/double hotel room per night:$75-$150

Gday well I was a sailor for a few years that met a girl in the Bahamas and came back to visit her , got married 3 months later and that was 10 years and 3 kids ago. A lot has happened from then to now. How does the kite boarding fit into this? Well a few years ago my friend Capt Ben Gillard ,hooked me up with an old naish kite and a hammer direction board and said here ya go. And I haven’t looked back since. anyways I have been developing kite boarding in the Bahamas for a few years now.(a learning exp) AJ Watson
