2016 Winter Traning on Bonaire

Just returned from another season on Bonaire! Best season so far (as usual)!

Landed a full time job teaching Physical Education at an international school in the western region of Gothenburg shortly after the final freestyle camp last summer. Cold temperatures and a slight shift of focus forced me to take a nearly 6 month long break from windsurfing.

However, come March I was back in the game yet again - with a two month leave of absence in front of me, a whole new set of Starboard Windsurfing and Avanti Sails gear in the bag, and the kind of motivation only a long hiatus can stir up, it was time to return to Bonaire for 2 months of all out freestyle action.

The new moves were many and not far between. Chachoo combos, the Voquech, Flaka combos, the Air-Bob... The list goes on.

Below is a small taste of footage that I stashed away from all the incredible sessions I went through over the course of these two months. Head over to MY INSTAGRAM @ErikHakmanS1988 for the full scoop!

Good times rollin at the Straight Outta Fiskeback™ Freestyle Clinic two weekends ago. 19 riders from all over the country had three days worth of awesome light and strong wind freestyle sessions in the Shitbay waters. The last days was topped off with a Light Wind Freestyle Competitions, part of the Straight Outta Fiskeback™ Freestyle tour. Local riders Anton Öqvist and Becka Ohlsson took first and second place respectively.

If you missed this years edition I've got you covered, the tour will be back on for 2016, bigger and better than ever.
