Windsurf Bliss

The Christmas trade winds arrived in time for the holidays. Marguerite and I have been camped out at Jibe City for the holidays. We have been watching the windsurf scene from our lounge chairs, enjoying the lovely cuisine at Hang out Bar and I have been catching a few solid windsurf sessions. My absolute favorite sail is the 4.7 meter Neil Pryde Wizard. Jibe City has a slew of newly rigged sails and brand new lovely JP boards. They also just received a shipment of Fanatic boards with more volume for the beginner or heavier sailor.

The bay has been rocking with some nice chop in the mornings. By afternoon, things flatten out a bit. Out on the highway, the British Invasion domininates. Leader of the pack, Trevor, clocked up a holiday record of 53.6 km/hr (28.9 knots) recently. The family sails from early in the morning until late in the day. I will upload some photos later once I figure out a snafu with my upload system. Trust me, it’s nuking here. To book your windsurf holiday contact ann@bonairewindsurfing.com
