Owners are great, lovely spot on the Spanish Waters. For windsurfing and SUP trips. Lessons are fun, also for children and when the wind blows this is the place to be for fanatic windsurfers.

The Spanish Waters has a perfect wind for sailing, and none as thrilling as windsurfing with high speed. Nowadays with special boards and trimmed sails one can learn how to windsurf in a few hours. This is a fun activity specially for kids during their holiday.

The instructor was very patient & my 3 teenagers picked it up quickly. I couldn't believe how well they did under the watchful eye of Derek for the first time. He was terrific, I highly recommend it. If they could add restrooms & a snack bar it would be great for the parents watching their kids.

Hilde picked us up from the hotel and drove us back again. My daughter had an hour private lesson and she loved it. It's too bad that we didn't have enough time to come back again. Thank you!

I just had the WORST experience with this company. The only reason I even gave it a 1/5 is because their equipment was good. I had signed up for a one hour SUP. I'm an experienced paddle boarder, but not an expert. We were told conditions were windy but fine to go out and that if we weren't back after... More

This client did indeed receive bad service, for which we are indeed to blame. We have strict safety protocols in place that prevents such an event to happen, but on this specific incident we had the "chain" break on two places. None of which were the clients fault. We have reviewed what went wrong internally and changed procedure to prevent... More

We were picked up by the owner at our hotel to save money on a taxi and taken to a lagoon for lesson. On the ride to and from, we learned more about the country. When we started our lesson, Bas, our instructor, was thorough and very patient. My 2 teenagers picked up the skills right away and I got... More

This was our first time windsurfing, and we left with nothing but great memories. What an incredible experience! Hilade picked us up at the cruise port and drove us to a private cove that was near town, but yet quiet. We spent 90 minutes learning the basics both on land and in the water. We were on our own boards... More

My wife and I rented Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) boards from Windsurfing Curacao during our visit last week, and had a great time! The South/West side of the island (where Windsurfing Curacao is located) is perfect for SUP. Owners Ingmar and Hilde were great - very friendly, and and also very helpful with advice regarding local winds and currents. They have... More

I cannot say enough for Windsurfing Curacao!! When we arrived it was like walking onto the Isle of the Greek Gods, with a ton of buff, tan 6 foot tall men with flowing gold locks wandering about. I felt a little out of place, but that didn't last long. Our instructor was Sam, a windsurfing afficianado from the Netherlands. He... More
