“Visual Delight”

Bonaire Windsurf Place
Reviewed 29 April 2013

We visited Sorobon (the windsurf place) on Bonaire several times while on the island. It had the perfect ambiance that we were looking for. Forget the "all inclusive's". Located at the end of a long dry dusty road, this resort appears like an oasis . You are first assaulted and then mesmerized and embraced by the surreal colors of the Caribbean. You find a shady, secluded location near a bar, and with drink in hand you watch the windsurfers sail by in the shallow, warm waters of Lac Bay. You wander out into the waters - careful to avoid the roped off sea beds of turtle grass. You congratulate the locals for their ecological concerns to help preserve the indigenous wildlife. The cooling breeze is constant, the turquoise waters inviting and the windsurfers exhilarating to watch. One more drink and you might join them.

My wife and I took our first lesson and it went great, we actually ended up surfing! Also there is a very nice bar nearby with good food and prices. I had read one review stating that you had to pay USD 50 for the lesson plus 150 for the equipment, but that was not the case; we paid 50 each for 2 hours (1 lesson + 1 by ourselves), including the board.

Don't tell everyone but Bonaire has something for everyone if you want to windsurf. Learn all the moves in a safe, happy place. Fall off as much as you want delighting in the shallow clear soothing warm waters of Lac Bay. I love my Bonairian family at Windsurfing Place. Thank for being there.

Great place to learn to windsurf and just have a few drinks and hang out in the hip deep water. Great fun!
