The new Tabou Twister 2013! I can’t wait to get home from Bonaire to ride this new board. Compared to the Twister from last year this one is Single Fin again and without the fish nose and tail =)

Premiére “Children of the Wind”

Tuesday June 26th we were invited as Jibecity Crew to the premiére of the new Windsurfing documentary “Children of the Wind”, held at the Divi Resort Bonaire. Around 7.30 pm we met everyone at the parking lot, nicely dressed up for the big night. All the children of the wind as Kiri Thode, Cheppie Gustowski, Choko Frans and Amado Vrieswijk were present!

Between 7.30 and 8pm the documentary got introduced by the 3 most important people; Elvis (Windsurfplace Bonaire) and the two directors. At exactly 8pm the movie started.

I experienced the movie as the best windsurf film/documentary i’ve ever seen in my life. The directors succeeded in telling an emotional, informative and touching story about the emergence of Windsurfing on Bonaire, the kids with their dreams to become Windsurfing World Champion, combined with the newest action from stars as Kiri Thode, Taty and Tonky Frans. Congratulations!

Good winds at Bonaire!

At the moment i’ve already been hanging out at Bonaire for about 2,5 months! The first month was not spectacular, almost no wind. Tried to go out some evenings with Dieter to try plaining with the Gaastra Pure 5,2, not always succesfull unfortunately! The last 1,5 month were way way way better! From the start of may up to now, Bonaire has shown his best side! An average of 20 knots, made me learn some new tricks which lukely have been captured by photographer Markus Seidel (markusseidel.com). Check them out under Photos!
