From 30 of August to the 2nd of September we will have a kiting event here on Aruba.
It's a event for amateur kiters so no pro.
There will be some Pro riders at the event for a kind of demo. Martin Vari is coming also Jeff Tobias and Ruud Overwater of Holland and maybe some other riders.
If anyone is in the area you are welcome to come and see or also come and compete.
See you in Aruba

HA. I want to go and support it Brah. Go check out the setup down there. Judge hang. And anytime you go sailing with Tobias you always come home with lots of new tricks. As for the wind.....Since I broke my rib the gods have been good and the wind has sucked. PR wind has been light and only windy in the mornings but not the afternoons.
Laters. R. PS look out next year. Ill be over your way lots.
Aloha Royce.

Aruba usually is windy 24/7 but I think its off shore a little. Still should be fun. And a week of sailing with the guys they say are going you learn alot.

In Aruba the wind was blowing good yesterday.
I was way overpowered with my F-One Mach 9.1
And my friends were on their Airblast 6.3
The event will be held at Arashi and yes it is off shore wind over there.
About accomodations I will check with the organizers whats available but I'm sure there is something.
I'll let you know.
