I haven't kited it yet but I'm also interested in trying it out. The flat water between Bugaloos and Five Cays is the closest I've kited to where you're talking about, and it's nice. When are you going there?

If you read french, check that link:

I have paddled Chalk sound several times, but never tried kiting. The wind is kind of gusty compared to other spots on the island.
There is an access point just before making the turn at the police station going toward taylor bay and sapodilla bay.
You can definitely launch in the water.

Taylor bay and Sapotilla, bay: you can also launch The beaches are not wide but water is very shallow for about 100m, so can launch in the water... but I never had good wind fro East South East to try it...
