Lovely Holiday – Part 2

Lovely Holiday Part 2 – VIDEO ONLINE NOW!!!

“After Brazil, Beatrice wanted to take her sailing to the next level and traveled to Bonaire to train. Her good friend Magdalena sees how beautiful Bonaire is and how much Beatrice has improved and decides to surprise her in Paradise.

Together they work on their synchro freestyling, improve their slalom sailing and discover the island. For their sightseeing trip, they indulge and rent a Mustang. They discover the iconic pink salt lakes, the impossibly blue sea on the south side and are pleasantly surprised by some hotties on the side of the road… or are they?

Both Magdalena and Beatrice had a blast on Bonaire and are already planning their next Lovely Holiday together!”

Learning The Foiling​ Gybe on Bonaire

I´m on Bonaire in the Caribbean to train for the upcoming PWA Freestyle World Cup starting 9th of April. On a light wind day I went out with my foil gear and trained the foil gybe. Still, a lot to improve, but it´s a lot of fun to do this “new flying” discipline when the wind is too light for freestyle.

Save The Ocean

Save our ocean!

We were 2 months in Jericoacoara, Brazil to windsurf. When we went to the lagoon we found a place right outside the main streets full of plastic. My friends said yes to join a beach clean up, and it was a nice thing to do together between freestyle sessions. We hope for a cleaner ocean and that we find a solution to all the plastic pollution. Take action and do a beach clean up at your beach=)

“Lovely Holiday” – New Video

Beatrice used to be one of the tourists that would come to Jeri to just enjoy the caipirinha’s and watch the windsurfers sail into the sunset. Until one day she was very curious to find out what the fuss was about this windsurfing and why these windsurfers would spend hours and hours on the water. She gave it a try and loved it! Now she’s trying to convince her friend Magdalena to give it a go as well. Magdalena really loves coffee so it could be hard to get her on the water. This is the story of 2 tourists trying a new sport, and before they know it they fall in love with it. And…. ACTION!

This year again Sarah-Quita Offringa met up with Oda Johanne on her yearly trip to Brasil. It was another amazing two weeks sailing at the lagoon, Jeri and Maceio. The cherry on top were two days of really fun swell in Jeri. Filming for “Lovely Holiday” was probably one of the most fun sessions in Maceio. For an hour we were sailing in our dresses and hats without harnesses trying to synchronize our moves. It was almost impossible because the waves in Maceio don’t come in one line.

So you may have noticed that our synchro shots are not so synchro! We also learned that backslaps after a failed forward are brutal without a harness. Other highlights of the trip were Magdalena (Sarah-Quita’s alter ego on the water) launching into her first double forwards, and Oda pushing to new heights on her pushloops on the big wave days! Brazil delivered once again!

Join me on a day of training in the lagoon with my friends. It´s a fun ride on the buggy through sand dunes to get there. This video shows you “behind the scenes” of how we train freestyle windsurfing together. Pushing hard, crashing harder, and finally we succeed! This is the 4th episode of “My South American Diary”.
