ABK BoardSports Camps. But after the bad economy got through to us last year, we had planned to skip the trip this year. That did not seem much of a problem for a while, since the winter came late, and we had plenty of warm days to go windsurfing.
Things started going south when my lovely wife came back from visiting family with a nasty cold that soon had us both coughing day and night, and kept us off the water for a while. Next, my car decided that 8 years without problems was enough, and started making funny noises - just in time to miss two days in a row of great wind. Then, when the car was finally fixed and the colds under control, we got our first snow storm. Nothing major, but still - not exactly ideal weather to go sailing here. But just as depression wanted to knock on the door, a couple of good things happened. First, we heard that we could expect a rather substantial tax refund; then, we saw that the prices for flights to Bonaire had dropped to rarely seen lows, even for flights in the near future. I bet you can guess the rest - we are going to Bonaire soon! Big smiles are back on our faces.
Bonaire is a wonderful spot for all windsurfers who love flat water. Of all the great things there, I think the colors of the water is one of the most beautiful things, especially as you sail from the large shallow area into the deeper half of the bay. I know that not all my readers have had the chance to visit Bonaire, so here is a brief video from last year that's indented to illustrate this point. Hope to see you all in Bonaire soon!
