The experience was good. We had one hour windsurfing class and one hour practice on our own. The instructor was having difficulty teaching, he didn't seem to be in a good mood and felt rushed. Overall it was a good experience and will do it again preferably with a more patient instructor.

Aruba Active was very easy to coordinate and schedule with. All the employees were friendly and welcoming. They tailored my instruction and equipment to my skill level and were able to advance with me as appropriate. Instructor Gavin was terrific to work with. Very helpful, patient, and knowledgeable. The off shore wind and conditions take some getting used to but their service and support fit the environment. I loved that the beach / area was not nearly as crowded as other places that I have kited. It is a very chill environment. Also, when I could stay upwind, the flat conditions were a real treat. I'd come back again!

My dad and I took individual kitesurfing lessons. Both of us had gone kitesurfing a few years ago so we were not completely new to the sport which the instructors took into account. Chema was my instructor and he was great, he helped me build confidence with taking longer runs. My dad had Gavin as an instructor who was very encouraging. Everyone was very welcoming, Lauren was super helpful with all our scheduling needs through WhatsApp. I recommend booking ahead of time and getting the 5 day package and taking a rest day in the middle to really see improvement in your kitesurfing. Overall we had a super fun time and we would definitely go back to improve our kitesurfing.

We loved how unique the blokarting experience was. We were driven up towards the lighthouse and had the whole sandy area to ourselves. Our guide was great as he showed us what to do and took video and pictures of us throughout the experience. Once you figure out the wind direction and how to position the sail, it's really easy to steer through the circuit and let the wind guide you. We got up to some big speeds! It was really easy to book, sign in and get out on the sand. Everyone was really helpful and nice. Our only comment was that we wished there was a longer circuit, but definitely understand staying close to the guide in case one of us crashed. It's such a unique activity that you can't do anywhere else. We highly recommend it.
