The largest amateur windsurfing and kite boarding competition in the world takes place every year in Aruba.   Hundreds of competitors vie for medals in various categories.  While most of the kite boarding competitions take place on the southern end of the island at Boca Grandi, the majority of the events take place at Fisherman’s Huts, just past The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba.

Aruba offers novice windsurfers and kitesurfers the opportunity to take advantage of the gentler winds, abundance of rental equipment and instructors along the island's southern shore.

Every year in late June or early July, the island hosts the Aruba Hi-Winds, featuring windsurfing and kitesurfing.

This five-day competition at the renowned Fisherman's Huts attracts the most competitive windsurfers for slalom racing and freestyle competition. There are Kids and Juniors competitions, too. Kitesurfers compete at Boca Grandi, a bay on the rugged North coast and demonstrate their skills at The Huts during the weekend, even after dark. Aruba Hi-Winds also has an interesting evening programme on-site with Djs and live bands.
