Windsurfing is a sport which is played on the surface of the water using a board and sail.

Like kitesurfing, this also a water sport that can be practiced almost daily here in Aruba thanks to the consistent wind. This sport requires lots of training in order to become good at it.

130c-Surfing

Surfing is a water sport that involves riding breaking waves to shore on a piece of equipment called a surfboard. Aruba has different beaches where you can surf depending on the person’s experience.

135c-Kitesurfing

Kitesurfing is a wind powered surface water sport using a kite and a board to move across the water.

Due to having lots of wind on the island, this water sport can be practiced almost every day.

What is also nice about this sport is, the long distances you can achieve.

200c-Kayaking

Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. In Aruba you can find many beautiful places to kayak. Such places include often beautiful mangroves with crystal blue waters.

220c-Bodyboarding

Bodyboarding is a water sport in which the surfer rides a bodyboard on the crest, face, and curl of a wave which is carrying the surfer towards the shore. Aruba has a variety of locations where you can enjoy this water sport.

320c-Parasailing

Parasailing is a fun way to experience the feeling of flying and to enjoy a unique, breathtaking view. With Aruba having a rich sea life, you can often expect seeing a sea turtle pop up from the surface when you are parasailing.
