Bonaire is an island in the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. Together with Aruba and Curaçao, it forms the group known as the ABC islands, located less than a hundred miles off the north coast of South America near the western part of Venezuela. Unlike much of the Caribbean region, the ABCs lie outside the hurricane belt and have an arid climate. This helps tourism as visitors to the islands can reliably expect warm, sunny weather with steady trade winds. Bonaire is also a popular destination for scuba divers, and well known for easy access to its various reefs—its shores are known as one of the best windsurf spots in the world.

Our Story

Bonaire Windsurf Place is the first locally owned and operated windsurf station on the windward side of the island known as Sorobon, at Lac Bay. And was opened in 1995 by owners Elvis Martinus, Constatino Saragoza and Roger Jurriens. Together they have created one of the best places in the world to windsurf, attracting return visitors year after year!

The water is shallow and warm, with steady tradewinds, and a beautiful beach–perfect conditions for catching some wind in your sails and claiming the freedom of the water in a sheltered and safe environment. The owners of Bonaire Windsurf Place have great experience dating back to 1987.

For those comfortable with their windsurfing abilities, Bonaire Windsurf Place offers the best in equipment rentals, with always the latest boards and sails from Starboard and RRD and Hot Sails Maui.
The unique shallow water and on shore wind conditions of Lac Bay make it a perfect place to advance in all levels.

We invite you to join our club and feel the passion for windsurfing!
