Bonaire has been tapped to host the Professional Windsurfing Association’s (PWA) inaugural event for 2005. Building on the successes of the last two years in which Bonaire hosted the King of the Caribbean Freestyle Pro-Am, the PWA in conjunction with the Bonaire Sailing Foundation has decided to reschedule the King of the Caribbean event to May 22 - 29, 2005. The past two years the event took place in December.In 2002, the King of the Caribbean became the first PWA windsurfing event to be held in Bonaire, catapulting this beautiful location to the forefront of the windsurfing community. The 2003 event once again made for an unforgettable finale to the Freestyle tour with superb conditions.
As one of the first events of the 2005 PWA calendar year, the King of the Caribbean will undoubtedly attract a strong entry list with entrants looking to make an early mark on the Freestyle rankings. It will also be the first opportunity for the world to see what’s hot and what’s not after a winter of training and development.
