Windsurf Bliss

January 11, 2011

Carole Hibdige, British Windsurf Shredder

What makes you happy?? What keeps you sane in between life’s chaos? Many on Bonaire find their zen on the water with the wind. The windsurfer is a unique character. Most are heavily addicted to weather sites and most own some sort of wind meter. Many plan winter escapes to warmer climates in search of the wind. Bonaire is one of the Caribbean’s hottest windsurf Mecca. My friend Carole shot this photo of Trevor, her wonderful better half. He clearly found his bliss.

Trevor and Carole and their windsurf clan escape to their island villa twice a year for weeks of windsurf fun. Light or high wind, the Hibdiges seek out the wind on Lac Bay.

A Day at Jibe City

Jibe City has a new manager, new gear and a fresh new look. Gert runs a tight ship and is ably assisted by Vanessa, Fen, Caesar, Tonky, Jayson and some junior staff. With the new JP boards and Neil Pryde sails, 2011 will be a stellar year for windsurfing at Jibe City.

Kids Camp

The winds were fresh today about 18-20 knots. Windsurfers were on a range of rigs from 5.5’s to 7.0 meter sails. Andy Brandt and his ABK team were on the water giving lessons. There was a kids camp running today as well. The sun was shining and it was a close to perfect day on Lac Bay.
