Action, action, action…
Amado Vrieswijk NB-20 was really active in the first months of the year now, with lots of sailing and many videos!
Here is his report:

I started the year 2018 with a month of freestyle- and wave-training in Cape Town, but was happy to be back on Bonaire before leaving for 7 months on April 1st to start the season.
Coming home, the flu hit me hard and was hospitalized for 24 hrs for monitoring and after a week of rest the wind was light and could get back on the foil-board to warm up.

In the weeks before Eastern, Bonaire is known for its strong winds. And also this year the perfect conditions came right on time. We had great sessions with my friends in the Bay of Kralendijk, with Kiri’s boat and Mr. and Mrs. Kuma on board we all had a great time.

Result: two awesome videos with lots of action!

Finally the wind got strong enough to push in some nice waves and i could score some nice wave sailing sessions at home!

I feel ready for the new season and look forward to the upcoming freestyle-, slalom-, foil- and hopefully some wave-events.

Cheers from windy Bonaire!
