Windsurfing Curaçao has been given windsurf courses for 13 years on this island. Aside from windsurfing, the company rents windsurf boards to clients. The company expanded its services six years ago and introduced SUP Curaçao (SUP – Stand Up Paddleboarding), which offers aquatic tours on a paddleboard. Since last year, Windsurfing Curaçao also provides kiteboard courses.
In 2019 Windsurfing Curaçao introduced a new project. This new project entails the replacement of all containers from which the company operates. The old containers will be replaced with a more efficient warehouse that will provide the opportunity to create more activities. The expansion of activities will contribute to the development of the company.
Aside from the warehouse for the equipment, a small restaurant, bar and lounge will be built as well. This area of 240 meter is created with the intention that visitors can enjoy the activities at Spaanse Water. Windsurfing Curaçao aims to create an inclusive atmosphere where local fanatics of water sports and tourists take pleasure in the fantastic atmosphere that Curaçao has to offer.
This project will be executed in two phases. The first phase consists of the warehouse construction and the horeca section will be constructed in the second phase. Approximately ANG 500.000 is invested in the entire expansion with private finance of persons who value the company. The construction activities started in September 2019 and the project is expected to finalize in the first months of 2020.
Moreover, Windsurfing Curaçao will provide employment opportunities to circa 23 persons such as windsurf and kitesurf instructors, people who repair equipment and boards, horeca staff, store personnel and employees for the main office. In the future, the company would like to use the shop to teach youngsters how to repair fiberglass boards that are used for different water sports. Through this initiative, the youth can become more financial independent and Windsurfing Curaçao will be able to comply with the high demand of persons who can repair fiberglass boards.
