You have to visit to this truly fabulous Windwise destination, in either January, Feb, March & April.  Situated in the Dutch Antilies Southern Caribbean Bonaire, it is one of THE most beautiful and productive coaching locations on our WINDWISE tour. We know were to go, where to sail and how to get the very best from the crystal clear flat shallow water, warm trade winds which perfectly suit our Freeride Skills Training System. Plus of course you'll we will show you the best parts of the island, take you to some fabulous restaurants and give you our welcoming Windwise socials and adventures both on & off the water!

 

Bonaire is super flat, KNEE TO WAIST DEEP WATER creating a gybertorium that guarantees you will learn to get round those corners. It's the perfect Windwise location to consolidate your existing skills and really make fabulous progress! 

Who's it for?

Bonaire450Our Bonaire windsurfing clinic and holiday is aimed at intermediate windsurfers looking to move their windsurfing onto another level.

Whether that is moving onto smaller boards, blasting faster with more control in straps & harness or making gybes!

 

Our SKILLS TRAINING SYSTEM will cover all of that plus  enhance faster tacks, dry gybes and tune up any other niggling technique issues you might have. Be warned, such is the success rate of our coaching system that we might even get you duck gybing! You don't have to be able to waterstart to sail Bonaire and it's got a sheltered area that produces the flattest water imaginable for learning - so what are you waiting for...?

Windwise Bonaire Hotel & Accommodation Options 

 

SINGLE SUPPLEMENT NOTE
Like in the states, in Bonaire, they charge by the room, so when we do our package price it is based on two people sharing a room. If you want your own room, it means you are paying for the whole room, effectively two accommodations. We have actually adjusted for you, but there's nothing we can do about this.

If you would like us to find someone for you to share with we can usually do this to help you save the single supplement.

Kit & Windsurfing Conditions In Bonaire 

Ultra flat water in a massive safe lagoon!  We are using Bonaire Windsurf Place, which is a STARBOARD / RRD centre. We will select the right board for your level and you can change within the centre and out group to suit changes in conditions and your level! They do use the rig deflectors/deviators to protect their boards, which is initially a bit of a pain, but you get used to them. The deviators can be a pain at first waterstarting, but you soon get used to them, plus which is so shallow, you barely need to waterstart...It takes 3-4 months to boards delivered to the island, hence they are keen to look after the kit. The windsurfing centre is packed with great kit, which is perfectly suited to the conditions - we can always switch boards to suit your needs! Boards between 95-150L (If you're unsure about what board is right for you, don't hesitate to ask)

The Caribbean trade winds blow 12-22 Knots (3-5) pretty much all day when the trades are in, so we get a really full day on the water and everyone always comments on how much they learn.

Sails 4.7-7.5m

What to take

It's highly likely that you'll be sailing in just boardies and rash vest! But bring a shortie if you feel the cold or to protect from sun and wind chill on breezier days. 

Hat, sunblock, booties (optional) / US pin travel plug / hoodie / fleece for sitting outside in evenings - 

Loud shirt for BBQ night!

Local currency: $

SMALL PRINT

WINDWISE will do their best to ensure your safety and enjoyment on the water. There will be times when you're being coached individually and in a group. There will also be times when you are freesailng by yourself. Windsurfing is, potentially, a dangerous sport and you must agree to sail in a responsible manner and in the designated areas outlined to you in resort.

In the event that Simon Bornhoft is not able to make the clinic due to illness or unforseen circumstances, your WINDWISE booking and holiday are still valid and the course/holiday and adventure will still go ahead and another Windwise coach will be provided for you.

***It's essential that you have third party windsurfing insurance! Either through your holiday travel insurance or RYA or UKWA insurance ***
