Aruba is cooled by a very comfortable breeze, the trade winds, at an average speed of 32.2 km/h (20 mph). Wind gusts up to 56.3 km/h (35 mph) are also very common. Combine this with the perfect depth at Fisherman’s Huts beach/Hadicurari Beach you’ll get the ideal location for any event.
Windsurf enthusiasts have recognized this potential and organized an international windsurf competition called Aruba Hi-winds. This event has been held since the eighties pretty consistently. This year this event will be celebrated from June 27th to July 3rd. Visit the official Aruba Hi-winds 2007 website for more information.
