Our owner started Moana out of love for the ocean. Before moving to Bonaire, Lianne was working as a teacher in Holland, spending most of her holidays on surf trips. Either traveling along the coast of France and Spain in a little camper van or flying to Asia or Australia.
During a surf trip to Bali back in 2003 her life really changed. While teaching environmental lessons in orphanages followed by surf classes to enhance job opportunities, she got a taste how she can combine her two passions: education and surf.
For the last 9 years Lianne is happily settled on Bonaire, still combining both passions.
She works parttime in education advising local schools in educational policies, while she passionately runs the surf shop and works on projects getting local kids into kiting.
This is your lady when it comes to any questions about living and surfing in Bonaire.
Don't forget to ask her about her projects and see how you can support!
When Elza came to Bonaire 3 years ago it was for a holiday, at least that's what she thought.
The moment she stepped out of the airplane she fell so in love with the water, the wind and all good vibes Bonaire has to offer, that she decided to stay.
Kiting soon entered her life. As a kid her dad would take her land kiting, racing in buggies on the long stretched beaches of Holland. So when she saw kitesurfing on Bonaire, she was determined to learn.
We are super happy that she's here!
With her creative skills, she has a natural eye for quality and style and will be happy to help you picking out the best styles.
Be sure to ask her about her handmade crochet bikini's and tops, they are amazing!
