These pictures and video show the entire gamut of windsurfers on Lac Bay, Bonaire -- from beginners and little kids to world class PWA freestyle champs, including Taty Frans, Kiri Thode and Youp Schmit, 2012 second time PWA World Champion Under 18. The guy in the yellow "STAFF" shirt showing off light wind freestyle moves is Andy Brandt, the genius behind ABK Boardsports, the itinerant school that taught me all I know. Most of the pictures and video footage were shot by Meredith Robert of ABK. Don't forget you can click on the lower-right corner of the YouTube thingy to make the video play full-screen.
I spent 3 weeks on Bonaire this month, mostly working on improving my own windsurfing skills. (It's tough work, but someone has to do it!) The middle week, I took an ABK Boardsports clinic for some invaluable instruction from the folks who have taught me everything I know in windsurfing.
This is Bill vdB, sharing little vignettes of windsurfing on Sayers Lake, in Howard PA. and sometimes elsewhere.
