Jibe City – Windsurf News

September 5, 2017

uire Kralendijk

Jibe City is expanding. Monique and Robert, owners, are excited to announce an additional location at Delfins Beach Resort: a brand-new resort on the West Coast of Bonaire. I just inspected this property. It features modern rooms, the largest pool on the island, top notch diving facilities with Dive Friends, and a beautiful sandy beach. Delfins will also feature  a fantastic restaurant manageed by renowned Dutch couple Jonnie and Therese de Boer who gained worldwide fame with their restaurant, Librije. The property is slated to open Nov. 1. I am accepting new reservations and will personally select an amazing room. 

This location is best for intermediate and advanced sailors. Foils will be perfect here and rentals will be available as well as lessons.. There will be a rescue boat and GPS trackers due to the slightly side off wind conditions.  The shop will be a Severne Pro Center. There will be a shuttle to and from the Lac Bay shop so you can sail at either stop. 

Please contact me for the new 2017/18 rates.  As always, I will offer discounts on your gear when booking a hotel / car package. All the rates are including use of kayaks, SUP’s, free use of harness and lockers.

Thanks for your business.  I appreciate the opportunity to plan your trips. Your business allows me to continue to enjoy my Bonaire Bliss.  Bonaire continues to be one of the best destinations to learn to sail or hone your skills. Come on back soon.

Severne Sail Bliss

July 21, 2013

I have found windsurf heaven. I started sailing in 97 and have sailed mostly Neil Pryde sails. I have tested Maui Sails, Gaastra and Gun Sails along the way. This week, Gert, the manager at Jibe City recommended I try their Severne Gator sail. I sailed the 5.0 several days this week. What a sweet sail. I used my loyal 85 liter Angulo Chango board paired with the Gator 5.0 was a bit of heaven.  Bonaire has been experiencing crazy good July trades but with some voodoo chop. It’s been challenging but fun sailing and the Gator sail really made my day.

It’s always a treat to have good summer wind on Bonaire. The Severene sail has really enhanced my windsurf experience this week.
