I stayed on Aruba for a few weeks and took a couple of private lessons (so far 9) and it was definitely worth it!!! I went out with Zoe and Carlos but since I spent a lot of time at the kite school and talked with other clients, I can tell that all of the instructors are great.

They are very experienced, knowledgable, motivating and super friendly. The most important thing for me was that they made me feel comfortable and safe all the time. When I was struggling after the first lessons both Zoe and Carlos were very patient and helped me getting over some initial frustration. And at some point it made klick and I could ride. Which was such a great feeling! And then it was just fun :)

It’s not just the lessons that are amazing but also the whole kite school. Everyone of the team is so nice and friendly. It’s fun to hang around there and to always meet new people. They help you with anything you need and scheduling new lessons is super easy (via phone, WhatsApp or just by walking in). They have all the equipment you need in all sizes.

Learn kiting with them is highly recommendable! Many many thanks to the whole team for making it such a memorable and great experience to me! After returning back home I’ll buy my own gear and will definitely come back at some point :)

I had the opportunity to spend a month in Aruba this trip and Aruba kitesurfing school really helped me hone in my skills. I started out with some basic knowledge of body dragging and by the third week I was up and riding with the confidence that this sport is something I want to continue mastering. Lessons with Georgina, Zoe, Carlos, and Juan Carlos(Cali-mon) were all supper helpful with tips and training to sort out the mistakes I was making.
I really appreciate their enthusiasm to share the love of the sport by teaching others how it is done properly and safely. I felt I was in good hands by choosing this kitesurfing school. The owner even turned me onto a group mountain bike ride, which I enjoyed getting to ride some different trails in the national park.
While hanging out at the beach hut I tried to be a sponge soaking up as much knowledge as I could, and everyone was happy to share their input.
I would recommend Aruba kitesurfing school to anyone looking to start out kiting or to gain more knowledge and experience in mastering their abilities.

I watched the kites from resort and became mesmerized! After a couple days my wife and I gathered the courage to inquire about it. Oscar and Zoe made us feel so comfortable that we both signed up for lessons. It was so much fun discovering how to fly a kite and invigorating to experience the power of the kite and control its flight. We certainly forgot about all our life's problems for the hours that we did this. It was the best part of our Aruba Vacation. This school made the process so simple and safe. I believe ANYONE can do this with just a little patience and guidance with proper instruction. You do not have to be really strong, athletic or a risk taker. Kite surfing is actually very relaxing. I felt very safe as the lessons progressed due to the shallow reef in the area they are located. You can literally stand up and walk back to shore. I would feel comfortable letting my kids get instruction at this school because of how they set up the lessons, with flat water and consistent wind. They are very concerned and aware of safety. They also have the best gear to make discovery and learning fast and easy. They also have the latest advanced gear available for experienced riders and tricks. They have so many options available, that I cannot say enough about this school. I am very satisfied with my time invested here. We experienced so much fun and relaxation learning to kite surf that we came home and are enrolling in more classes at home and ordered a kite and gear. I had no intention of kite surfing on this Aruba vacation but after discovering and experiencing their guidance, I think this is an activity our family is going to LOVE! Kite surfing can be very relaxing or thrill inducing. You have complete control. Give it a try!

Well, first of all when you rent equipment it is called "launch and pick up"! What does that tell you, is that you probably won't be able to come back on your own if you are not a master. A lot of buildings are hiding the wind witch come offshore and as we know it is the worse wind direction for kite surfing. All the beginners struggle, and you have to stay away from all these buildings. When I needed to be rescued I had to wait probably half an hour, because they are not available until they are finished with the lessons.
Anyway, I have been windsurfing and kitesurfing everywhere, for 40 years, and this is the worst spot I have ever been, and I am not recommending it to anyone unless they are mastering the skills.
And by the way, the locals go to another spot on the other side of the island which is on shore wind.
The only thing they do well is incredible good marketing!

Best kitesurfing school in Aruba! The whole team here is awesome, I’d highly recommend them. My girlfriend and I both did 4 lessons here and it was definitely worth it. The instructors were very patient and knowledgeable, and the whole vibe of the place was really chill. Zoe was really nice and accommodating to our schedule, and she was very honest about whether the conditions were going to be good or not. I’d recommend doing private lessons if possible, much more time with the kite :)

Really enjoyed my time learning to kitesurf here, I’ll definitely be back.

Having never been kiteboarding I was already a bit nervous watching people flying through the air. Upon arrival, the staff at Aruba Kitesurfing School welcomed me in and began explaining how a class went setting my expectations before even touching the water. Once I was geared, up my trainer Zoë put me through my paces and was always patient and reassuring when I clearly made mistakes. Never felt more welcome and safe during a lesson on vacation.

My kids (21 and 19) and I had an amazing time at Aruba Kitesurfing School. We took three days of lessons during our vacation in July 2022 with Zoë as an instructor, and I had an additional session with Mark. They were amazing people and talented coaches.

This is a family business and you can tell. From being greeted by Carlos, to our final hugs goodbye, everyone was amazing. Zoë bonded with my kids and I, and we will definitely stay in touch with her and we will visit Aruba again with kitesurfing with Zoë as top priority.

We are a pretty adventurous family and kitesurfing is probably the coolest thing we’ve ever done. I highly recommend Zoë and Aruba Kitesurfing School. You won’t regret spending the money on such a great experience.

Great kitesurfing school. Zoë and her team are very welcoming. Good instructions, attention for safety (both regarding COVID and kiting in general) and very customer friendly. I made a lot of progress in a week on Aruba! After the lessons there is cool water and a sunbed waiting for you to relax. Also on other days when I was practicing myself I was welcome to drop by for some tips and help to launch the kite. So if you like to have quality kitesurfing lessons, with nice people, good vibes and for a fair price, I can definitely recommend this place.

I had so much fun setting my first baby steps (and then giant leaps forward!) with Aruba Kitesurfing School! My boyfriend and I took the duo classes and we both learned how to control the kite, make a water start to both sides and safely get the kite up and running.

The instructors are amazing, funny and communicate very clearly on what to do and how to improve. Also to plan on the classes the communication was efficient and the instructors were flexible. We absolutely loved it and will go back whenever we are back in Aruba!

I've never thought I would be able to kite surf in such a short time. The teacher was extremely nice and dedicated. He really had to work hard with me, lifting the kite again and again from the water for me, but eventually, on the third day, I was surfing and controlling the kite on my own. An amazing experience. highly recommended.
