Back-to-Back Windsurf Events Start Today

Winds are great as the pros and kids gather on Bonaire for two back-to-back windsurfing events.  Tonight will be the opening ceremony for the Bonaire PWA World Cup 2014 tournament, which will run through mid-next week, after which the Pro Kids Freestyle will enjoy its tenth edition, from June 25 through 29, 2014.

All eyes will be on Bonaire’s Kiri Thode, who is the reigning PWA World Champion in freestyle, and he will enter the event as the favorite. The fact that Kiri was crowned the King of Bonaire in 2011--after winning both of the eliminations completed last time around--only further adds to his credentials as the man to beat.  Kiri is un-stoppable anywhere in the world, but here in Lac Bay, he’s on his home turf.  It will be an interesting PWA event as the island cheers for its own.

For the second week of competition for the ProKids, there will be lots of other events in addition to the freestyle and slalom competition, with live music, beach soccer, a Sorobon run, dominos, an aerobics marathon, bolas, and a paddleboard competition.  Nightly events will round out the days, ensuring everyone has a good mix of sun, sand, and windsurfing, with parties under the stars at night.

If you’re lucky enough to be on Bonaire during the next two weeks, be sure to head over to Lac Bay and enjoy these rock stars performing their moves!  (Source:  PWA and ProKids)
