Bjorn Dunkerbeck Pro Centre - Bonaire - Bonaire, Caribbean

Windsurfing Icon SUP/Surfing Icon

For your windsurfing holiday to Bonaire in the Caribbean, the Dunkerbeck Windsurf centre offers a protected, shallow lagoon with flat water and constant wind. The centre is owned by windsurfing legend Bjorn Dunkerbeck who has 42 World Titles as well as the Nautical Speed Mile record and the World Record for Open Ocean Speed. He first began competing at the Sorobon Windsurfing Masters and now has set up his very own centre at the Sorobon Beach Resort on Lac Bay.

Situated on the south east side of Bonaire on Lac Bay, the centre is approximately 10 minutes (6 miles) from the airport and 15 minutes (9 miles) from the main town, Karlendijk. The centre is located a few minutes’ walk from the Sorobon Beach Resort at the lagoon at Lac Bay. The lagoon is protected from the ocean by a big coral reef on one side and a large mangrove forest on the other. This creates an ideal environment for all levels of windsurfers. The lagoon offers crystal clear, waist deep waters stretching over 2km with constant strong winds.


A full rental and instruction service is available for all levels with professional teachers, and the latest equipment from Goya, Simmerstyle and Starboard. Guests at the centre have access to Sorobon Beach Resort's beach bar and lounge area for lunch or drinks.  Windsurf and foiling tours around the island of Bonaire are available. SUP rentals and sailing tours are also available. Kitesurfing is not allowed in the bay but there is a kitesurfers beach approximately 20 minutes drive away.
