We are too chicken to try this sport but it is fabulous to spend time watching the people do it. Kite surfing is very difficult but it is beautiful and fun to watch.

if you are looking for a great kite company in Aruba go with Aruba Kite. they are the ones that have the windsurfers and the blue buildings. They are laid back, friendly and offer great service and lessons. I took some lessons from Tim who really advanced my skills and got me started on jumps and turns. Many thanks for... More

My husband had never kite surfed and bought a beginner 2 hour package. He never did get up on a board but he is aost ready for it next time. He feels prepared and had a blast learning. This is a nice, family owned business that certainly exudes the happiness of the island!

Steady wind during the summer months. 23-30 mph day and night. Great people at the beach and the location during the week is not crowded.

The instructors were all very nice and friendly. My husband did the package of 4 lessons which are two hours each. It is pricey but definitely worth it if you want to learn the sport. They teach you in stages with two students to one instructor....unless you get lucky and you are by yourself. There's re private lessons which are... More

My husband and I visited Aruba in late August. After a couple of lavish dinners out, I decided a fun "cardio" activity was needed to help drown out some calories. We met Armando while investigating the island earlier, and our first impression was outstanding! Little did we know, that Armando would further impress us with his patience teaching us not... More

We went to Armando's Kite Shack at the Huts on Eagle/Palm beach for kite surfing lessons for my 17 year old daughter. They are the series of huts just beyond the Marriott and the new Ritz Carlton for the various water sport companies. She did the 4 lesson (8 hours) beginner course and was excited that she was riding by... More
