I took my first lessons next store at Armandos. Do not go there. They are not organized, there equipment is not as good as active vaca and their instructors are not certified. AAV is great. great teacher, great gear great service - they also have several rescue boats instead of one like the next door place.

Being that Aruba is one of the best wind surfing destinations, my boyfriend and I were really excited to take lessons through Jaya. The day we took our lessons, it was quite windy (seemed like ideal conditions) and starting to rain a bit. Prior to starting our lesson, we asked the instructor if the rain would be an issue, to...

This is by far the best group that we have encountered! We looked all around and Alex hooked us up with a week rental for our whole family for snorkel gear. He then even let us use a life vest as well for the less than confident swimmer in the group. We ended up spending Christmas Day with wind surfing... More

They met us outside the cruise terminal and shuttled us to beach hut to load up the equipment. After a quick 15 minute ride to the tip of the island, we were setting up the "Blokarts" on an isolated strip of beach. What a blast! The karts were easy to learn to sail and within a few minutes, everyone was... More

I have been in Aruba on five different occasions and each time there are significant changes but this beach side operation has been ongoing for most of my trips so if longevity has anything to do with quality then this operator is top quality. They have Cabrinha Kites if that makes a difference to you. I learned on them so... More

Excellent place to go kite surfing. I had a lot of fun with my teacher Arjen. During my one week holiday on Aruba I took two lessons to get to learn the basics of kite surfing. We started with the small kite on the beach to get a feeling how to control the kite. After one hour, we went to... More

Excellent place to learn Windsurfing. They had us up and surfing in less than 15 minutes. You can easily walk to their blue hut from the high rise hotels. The only negative comment I have - they gave us small sails (1.5M) & it's impossible to get any speed. Once we went in and requested bigger sails, it was awesome!... More

My instructor for the week was Edith Kobus. Had good fun with her and she taught me so many things so patiently. Really enjoyed it! Love the location and the vibe that's on the beach with all the people who gather there. Still have lots of practice to do but the lessons really made me enthusiastic to continue practicing. I...
