Great South bay is great, I don't think NY Kite center provide ride along anymore, I have heard about it and it's not on their website anymore but if they have room you can always call. I'm waiting for after labor day to hit Tobay beach once it's open to non resident...
Let us know where you are going exactly there are many spots. It's a bit tricky in summer with N wind because a lot of the beach on sound and bay are resident only or have pretty expensive fee.
If you are staying with family they probably have some resident beach access on the sound that should work for you.
If you are going to the Hamptons there is Napeague bay.
You can join Facebook group "Northeast #KiteLifeCrew" and ask question with proper location there are people from all over long island on that group.
Not sure where I'll go yet. If it's NW then probably Eaton's neck with semi offshore condition but $30 parking. If NE either I can sneak in Great South bay or find another beach in Longisland Sound that's not too choppy and cheap.
