Judging by this morning Bucutti cam, my guess is that the Tamarijn beaches are getting hit hard. Remnants of 'Sandy' impacting the island.
I've been watching both Bucuti Cam and Amsterdam Manors cams...haven't seen waves like that in a long time!
yup sandy causing surf.
sandy, before she was named sat as a tropical something or other, not quite a depression, north of aruba......sat there for a week throwing in rain, sucking out wind and spawning a few waterspouts. sandy developed into a depression, then began the move a few days ago. by tomorrow there should be no sandy effects on aruba.
here is some rough surf photos from costa linda

We had waves like that for one day back in April... pretty intense and amazing looking for Aruba. I got to watch one wave completely engulf a 6 ft. man, with at least 4-5 feet above him to spare, and this was by the watersports shack at the Tamarijn.
Yup, pretty intense, and yes indeed, I do miss that place.
Next April at earliest at this point, maybe not 'til June... oh boo.

Aruba.... May 21, 2017, unless that lottery ticket hits.

just spoke with someone in aruba and she says, aside from surf being high and beach erosion, all is wonderful
