No Wind, What’s a Windsurfer to Do??

May 21, 2010

What the ??

Weather predictions show a wind shut down in the next week or more. My favorite models come from

Fortunately I have few windsurf clients heading to the island but for those who have chosen May 22 as your week, what to do? Well if you still want to take a go at windsurfing, meet Caesar Finies, our island’s best light wind freestyler. He works at Jibe City and can connect you with a rig and lesson to learn how to feel the breeze and become light wind proficient.

When the shuts down I head to the sea and snorkel. We have over 50 shore sites one can park and head in. My favorites include Tory’s Reef, south of Invisibles and the wall at Plaza snorkeling all the way south near the airport.

Weather News

July 4, 2009

Well, once again, nailed their forecast. As promised major heavy duty rain fell in Bonaire late yesterday afternoon. The winds were gale force and the amount of rain was substantial. My rain barrel filled up and the yard was full of massive puddles. Prior to this, we lost power in the Belnem area. I am not sure about other areas. I sat with the doggies outside on the covered patio with a sweatshirt on and read with a flashlight. Finished Sky Burial, a story about Tibet. FANTASTIC. The winds are strong today but there are puffy clouds with peaking sun.
