Bonaire is best know as one of the world’s best spots to windsurf.  All eyes are on the news of a cutting edge windsurf center on island. Windsurf pro, Bjorn Dunkerbeck and Phillipe Bru, founder of Defi Wind have partnered with Sorobon Beach Resort, opening a Pro Windsurf Center. Located on the Dutch island of  Bonaire, the center is situated on windy Lac Bay. This expansive bay features gin clear water, shallow depths and on shore trades.  Windsurfers around the globe come to this pristine water to train, learn or simply hone their skills. Dunkerbeck, Bru and the managers at Sorobon had a vision to bring a high performance center for guests of the property.

The Center will feature Goya and Starboard boards as well as Simmer Sails.  There will also be foil boards and stand up paddle boards.  The team at Dunkerbeck Pro Center will be hosting windsurfing events and clinics. The next Defi Wind event is slated for June, 2018. Defi Wind

Sorobon Beach Hotel offers Caribbean inspired rustic bungalows set in a tranquil mature garden setting. On site is a yoga center and spa, two restaurants and a beach bar. Cozy cabanas are spread about on the beach as well as beach loungers. The views of the bay are expansive. This is the perfect setting for those who wish to unwind and unplug from the realities of day to day life.

The Pro Center and Sorobon’s bayside setting makes for a perfect windsurf holiday. To learn more about windsurfing on Bonaire or to book your stay, contact Ann Phelan, a former PWA Event Promoter and 31 year seasoned travel consultant.  Caribbean Wind and Sun

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.

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

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.
