Was over there in June/July two years ago. Stayed at Heaven on the Planet at Ekkas. Good surf break right in front on the south eastern side Lombok. Wind and swell cranked the whole time. Huge flat water reef lagoon at Kaliantan (about 20 minutes away) with reef pass waves forever.
Heaven isn't cheap but food all inclusive and just a really chilled place to be.
Area is pretty remote too so not spoiled by tourism like the better known places.
Look up Kaliantan Kitesurfung on FB and get in touch with Lalu.

I think May is a bit early in the season for kiting...

Apparently Ekkas Breaks is Ok. Its a ittle more basic but read some good reviews when I was researching my trip there. I had the wife iin tow so needed to up the level a bit, hence Heaven.
If you want real basic, again, contact Lalu at Kaliantan Paradise Bungalows. He's got some small bungalows a two minute walk from the kite beach that are super cheap. He kites so will be able to give you more advise on the winds in May.

Didn't go to Kuta Lombok. Have heard good and bad reviews. Depends on what your after.

Good luck Ricardo,
I went to Lombok 2 years ago in peak season with a 9m and surfboard and never kited due to lack of wind.
In fact out of about 52 days in Indo across 4 islands, I have kited about 6/7 times.
Bear in mind I don't like big kites.
Stayed at a Homestay at Ekkas and it is a great cheaper option as opposed to Heaven.
Having said this I have always had a great time, just be prepared to go surfing, snorkeling etc.
Am going to give Sumbawa a go next year !
Wish me luck.
