Wicked Wind

May 4, 2014

The trades continue to howl here in Bonaire. It’s truly, windsurf paradise. We’ve had little rain so the Sahara dust is fierce thus making sunsets spectacular. Come on down. Ask me for my many spring specials including 5-10% off select properties for last minute May bookings. I have space available for Andy Brandt’s ABK Spring Bonaire Camp May 26 week.

Windsurf Bliss

No wind, come SUP

No wind, come SUP


As I finish packing up to head home to Bonaire, I had to peak at the wind forecast. I had a lovely pre summer sojourn on Cape Cod with a visit to Bermuda. It’s been super hot on Cape Cod and the 4th of July traffic has been insane. I seek the solitude and serenity of my summer Bonaire.

Windguru and Windfinder are in concert; BIG WINDS are here to stay in Bonaire. To celebrate this windy period, I am offering 5-10% off all new bookings starting today for travel through Nov. 1. Remember, Andy Brandt has his annual Aug. ABK clinic the 17th. I have steep discounts that week as well. Kids Camps continue all summer. Ask me for details.

December 11, 2012

Jibe City Windsurf Center

For 11 years I have had the privilege of booking windsurf vacations for my discerning windsurf clients. Bonaire, best known as an amazing dive destination is also a windsurf Mecca due to shallow gin clear water, on shore steady trades and of course the famous Bonaire windsurf team. Jibe City is located on windy Lac Bay. New management has brought in high end gear and a reliable team of windsurf professionals to offer a high performance windsurf experience. Andy Brandt’s ABK Boardsports Camps are held throughout the year with a cluster during the winter windy season. Beginners can learn the sport while intermediates can hone their skills. Advanced sailors and pros come to train to refine their freestyle repertoire or to train in the deep blue in slalom conditions. To learn more about Bonaire’s windsurf scene, contact ann@bonairewindsurfing.com today. Caribbean Wind & Sun Vacation specializes in windsurf vacation packages and is a proud sponsor of the 2013 ABK Boardsports Camps.

Windsurf News at Jibe City

December 31, 2011

Jibe City has a large stock of 2012 windsurf gear rigged and ready. Bonaire has been experiencing their best steady winds of the year with the average sail size being 5.5 for men and 4.2-4.7 for women. It’s been a great holiday windsurf season so far. With brand spanking new year, it’s time to book your windsurf vacation.

I recently demoed an amazing 99 liter JP Freestyle board. The graphics were cool but more important this is a sweet board. This light weight super wide board was a breeze to sail during a high chop session. I teamed the board up with a 4.9 Neil Pryde Fusion. It was a light sail with plenty of low end power to get up to a plane quickly. I didn’t full appreciate the sail as the wind conditions were a bit gusty but feel this HD version sail.

Gert - Manager at Jibe City

Jibe City is staffed by a tight cohesive group of dedicated professionals available to rig and caddy your gear, lend some gear advice or to offer lessons to hone your skills. Jibe City is the official site of Andy Brandt’s ABK Boardsports School. On site is Hang Out bar serving refreshing drinks and libations as well as healthy and delicious food treats.
