20. june Bonaire

The World Cup has arrived on the beaches of Bonaire! Ye man, the King of the Caribbean is going to be crowned soon! Today is the registration day and the wind forecast looks good. Everybody is excited. I have been looking forward to that event for a while and for 7 months I have been training for it. Things have been mixed up lately. Last weekend I got injured and I stretched out my knee on a local event that took place here. Although it´s been hard to take that situation, the knee is getting better. Right now I plan to ride my heats. But expectations. Will see! The fire is ready! Pic by Markus Seidel

31. may Bonaire

Bonarian Irie vibes representing the Island culture with Bush bush crew sailing Sorobon day and night. Wind just keeps on blowing and seems to get stronger through out the next weeks. Ziggy and Poef guarding. Cool ya Man. I have been on the water a lot of days since last update. Like almost everyday. And I feel that the foundation-training for that season has been done. Now it´s time to prepare for the World Cup. Also a muscle injury on my hand is a sign to take a few steps back. So right now it´s important to rest a bit and run things easy. Alright, bless up! Catch ya Soon! Photo by Markus Seidel

17. may Bonaire

Now it´s the middle of may and already in one month the first PWA event gonna kick off. Super excited about that! Wind has been on our side, so the training goes good. The last days 5.1 has been in use and the up comming forecast is looking just Beautiful. Yemon. Just great to share waters with all these local and non local dudes and have fun everyday. And recently some new surfers from the mid Europe have arrived to color the picture on the water even more. And ye, I think soon the Hostel is full filled with the riders again as slowly all the scene is starting to book the tickets. Busy times coming. One good thing more about the Hostel - Every Sunday rasta Robert is heating up the grill here and bringing up some delicious barbeque. I mean he makes really nice Jamaican BBQ. Come. Come with us and enjoy it!´s time to close it. The time chamber training continuous...Irie

1. may Bonaire

Wind on Bonaire has been just on Fire! People even use sail sizes like 4.0 and stuff like that. I have been enjoying a lot these days the surfing and one day I could try out my 4.5 for the first time. That sail is just epic. Big up to Steven and for the rest of the R&D. I immediately fell in love and basically its the best sail I have ever tried! Also the chilling on the ground has been top notch as always here. Tranquilo vibes, Kuma Movie and sunny weather describes it well. Also always good to chill with Bram Schmit. Best chef on the island! Meanwhile I was also following the event in Austria and Im happy to see high results from Davy & Jacopo. Nice job mengs! Okey...that´s it for now. Sorobon calls again! Photo by Kuma Movie

15. april Bonaire

All circumstances have brought us to windless days here on Bonaire. Bushbush comapnion has been riched with Hugo and Loick and viceverse to right now´s situation when things are pretty quiet, the previous week was packed with wind and action. We had sessions in the mangrooves and all around. Also was nice to sail with Youp again, who is back on the waters and is enjoying it a lot. I cannot get enough of it myself also and the joy just grows bigger. Thanks to all we have had great surfing days down here and looks like soon the freestyle season kicks off in Austria. Will be interesting to look at.....because if it happens that the agp dudes bring out their potential. The action gonna be off the roof. We´ll see...Photo by Markus Seidel

30. march Bonaire

Bush bush back in the office. Have been wondering around these days. The wind is off, so it is pretty much laid back here. Gaining some inspiration from different kind of areas and doing some things. We have not too many of these things. It has bush, donkeys and lizards...So when it comes down for doing something, its more about the way of doing it, what quality it has in it. ´Not to throw it over shoulder´ is the aim. I could clean that kitchen maybe all day and it looks like nothing much was done. But the way of doing it has the difference. That´s the bush bush life. Anyway... Found that pic. Happy moments on Aqua Space. I think it was the time when Bonaire had most of the PWA freestylers riding out here. And we can see how one by one the crew is slowly fading away. Into the wide open world. To revisit it again. Pic by Markus Seidel

17. march Bonaire

Bonaire Bush Bush raises from the deep depths of stillness. Relaxation, Bush Bush and Lord of the Rings sessions will slowly turn into madness on the water as The wind is back! I think we will have a new chapter here. From the time we arrived on Bonaire with Davy, Sten and Ingrid, we didn´t have a break like that. Basically we had a 4 month session, yo know....with some rest days in between but maximum like 4 days....Now we have been dry for a while, so mind, body & Co are ready to hit it hard hard again-from a new page. All the guys are actually sailing right now but yesterday´s food poisoning took me down. After Sten´s and Ingrid´s pancake feast, I had a strange feeling in the stomach. Later on at Hostel we started to watch 3rd part of the Lord of the Rings, and at the point where Gallum is transforming or sth like went pretty ugly and I had to run to the bush bush, hahaha. In the end it all came out. Anyway, today we gonna celebrate Brampys birthday and rest one more day. Tomorrow I bet 5.1 goes down to 4.8, maybe 4.5 ;) Peace! Photo by Markus Seidel
