Aruba Kite Boarding

October is the off Season for Kite Boarding in Aruba, but it can still be windy. My favorite part is the warm water, hot sunshine and the people. To avoid a serious sun burn a quality “Sunblock” is a must. A powerful Offshore wind mixed with a serious highrise hotel wind block creates a challenging water field. So if you get into trouble (equipment trouble) or need assistance returning to shore hopefully a rescue boat sees you and picks you up. Most likely you will have no hesitation paying the $20 fee.

It was a pleasant surprise to hear and see waves on the windward unpopulated side. A local Dutch kiter spoke of a nice smooth over head wave hitting the coast near California lighthouse. All in all the offshore wind, warm torqoise blue water, and hot sunshine make a rewarding kite session for all levels.
