My wife and I just returned home from our Aruba trip. We absolutely loved the kite surfing time, Lysander, and Angie are so nice and helpful. What a blast this sport is, I'd love to keep working on getting better at it. They are patient even when things don't go as planned, CRASH again!! What a beautiful place to learn this super cool sport and have it come to life!!! Thanks again, to all that helped!
BOOYAH!! WHAT A RUSH..HAS TO BE THE MOST EXCITING SPORT SO FAR!! LYSANDER AND HIS CREW ARE FANTASTIC! SHOWED UP IN ARUBA NEVER HAVING DONE KITESURFING BEFORE AND WITH THE INCREDIBLE PATIENCE, KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS OF ALL THE INSTRUCTORS 8 HOURS LATER AND SOME SWALLOWED WATER I WAS KITESURFING ON A BOARD IN ARUBA!!! A MUST FOR EVERYONE TO TRY AND THESE GUYS AND GIRLS ARE THE ONES TO DO IT WITH...THANX AGAIN TO THE WHOLE CREW!! SEE YOU AGAIN SOON WITH MY OWN GEAR NEXT TIME!
I took lessons with Lysander at Aruba Kite Surfing in Aruba and it was really great. He was flexible with my schedule (I have a family) and very skilled at teaching me. One day he had one of his other teachers teach me and he was equally as good. I really loved the experience. I plan on going back to Aruba to learn some more with them. The Island has such perfect conditions to kitesurf. Really, really great!!
Had a great week kiting in Aruba thanks to Lysander and crew for an must repeat Vacation. thanks for exploring Aruba with us .driving us around and showing us where to stay. We'll be there soon again. I'm learning how to jump now and its really fun . keep the good tips up bye.!
Thanks Lysander we had a blast in aruba with your guys we see you next year again ARUBA ARIBA!
Aruba June 6th -13th 2012 Earned a 4 day trip through work and extended it a bit. Kited 6 out of 7 days (multiple session a day) and missed one due to bruised ribs from badly timed trick. Stayed at the Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino (first Resort next to Fishermen's huts). June is supposed to be the windiest month of the year. It blew all week, all night and all day. It was also cooler in Aruba then it was back in Maryland USA. Kited mostly fisherman's huts area but also scored some swell/waves on the other side of the island in Boca Grande. Boca Grande is a 45 minutes from the huts and has a nice set up for waves/swell. Nice change of pace from the flatter water at the huts. I never thought of Aruba as a kite destination, but I have changed my mind. You couldn't go wrong if you wanted to be certain of wind this time of year. With the kiting being right next to a high-end resorts it was a big plus for my girlfriend and I. She was able to take windsurfing and kite lessons and drink fruity drinks under a tiki hut or at the poolside bar while watching me kite. Snorkeling, Standup Paddleboarding and touring the island in 4x4 was great fun. Lysander and his crew had the latest Naish kites/boards and were really friendly. Made my girlfiend really comfortable. Even though I didn't take any lessons Lysander gave me a lot of tips about kiting his home spots. The local kiteboarders rip as good as anywhere. Many cute local arubian and dutch girls kiting or learning to kite from Lysander and his crew. The locals also know how to throw a really cool kite event and party. Hope to come back.!
