Very positive experience with the instructors and staff at the Aruba kitesurfing school and recommend highly. The price is also very good - worth every penny (and more!). Take the multi-day course (4 days) to get the best experience. I took 5 days - it's worth it! The staff is very skilled, knowledgeable, and skilled. The quality of the gear... More

They are lazy and teach by standing near shore. The other shacks follow in a boat so you learn MUCH faster. Go further down the beach to one of the other shacks or even go to Vela in between ritz and Marriott. Sorry but it's true.

I was scheduled for 3 pm. I could see I was the only name for that whole afternoon , in her appointment... More

Perfect position on the beach for learning the sport- Personally Im into windsurfing, but now after this course my kids will never return- KITING is the thing they say :-) Good equipment and excellent instruction made this a very positive experience, and nothing is more important than happy and tired kids in the evening- BIG thank you to Sandra and...

Very friendly crew; Lysander and Angy make it a real pleasure of being around them, aswell as the international team of instructors which were all experienced and very nice persons.... More
