Aruba Kite Surfing, video

Kite surfing is one of Aruba’s most popular sports. The steady trade winds and a tranquil lea shore make for ideal conditions. Here’s a video of a couple of kite surfers in action.

That guy did a nice jump there, plenty of hang time. There was also a woman who kite surfed from Venezuela to Aruba last year, a distance of about 17 miles. If you’re going to enjoy the spot where this video was taken, you better do it soon. There is talk of building a new Ritz-Carlton Hotel on that spot.

Bon dia from Aruba.

  1. I don’t suppose that this would get a person from Cuba to Florida?:)

    I enjoy a warm vacation as much as the next person, but I am saddened by the overdevelopment of so many great areas. I believe in Jamaica they can’t build any higher than the tallest palm tree on the beach, so at least the development isn’t as obtrusive.

    Thanks for your blog- it’s a welcome change of perspective!
