Aruba Surf Lessons
A bit about the the island’s conditions – Generally speaking Aruba is a very windy island due to our easterly tradewinds.Our local surfers rely on the wind in the months of march through august.In this time of year our waves are created by wind.We have numerous surf spots on the east side of the island.We have several beachbreaks and reefbreaks on the east side of the island which are surprisingly fairly clean waves.
In the late fall and winter time we get our waves from hurricane swells and winter storms,which is our better time of the year for surfing.This does not mean that the rest of the months we have no waves.You can surf about 300 days out off the year in Aruba.
Aruba Surfing! Aruba has a great surfing community and great conditions for learning how to surf.
Learning how to surf can be a life changing experience. Surfers enjoy the rush of dropping into a glassy wave, flying along the wave face, more often than not in some of the most exotic and exiting places on earth. If that sounds appealing read our learn to surf guide below which will provide all of the basics you’ll need to know before taking your first surf lesson or hiring your first surfboard. If you learn how to surf correctly you’ll progress much more rapidly from a surf school beginner to becoming a real surfer.
Surf breaks vary enormously and if you try to learn at the wrong one it can slow down the learning process no end, possibly get you hurt and label you as a nuisance to other surfers. The answer is to forget reef breaks (surf breaking over, rock, coral etc) and heavy, hollow beach breaks and pick a beach with an easy, spilling, mushy break wave in the 2-4ft range. It may not be glamorous but it will be the best place to start. Also try and find a spot with no crowds- battling with hundreds of other beginners and more experienced surfers is not the way to go. If you have a little space it will be easier to learn. That’s why with us you get the best conditions for learning.
