Aruba Hi-Winds Competition

From Thursday, July 02, 2020 to Monday, July 06, 2020 July 2, 2020 July 6, 2020 MVC Eagle Beach Resort Aruba

It started in 1987, when windsurfing was booming and the world top was coming to Aruba to go for the government funded prize money. Bjorn Dunckerbeck, Robby Naish, Nevin Sayre, Phil McGain, Jimmy Diaz, they all came to this windy island to compete.
As the boom faded in the course of the 90's, so did sponsoring, and the world top windsurfers went elsewhere. Aruba Hi-Winds continued as an amateur event. Kite boarding, the new craze of the past decade, was added, so was freestyle and long distance racing. We keep following new trends in watersports, so hydrofoil kite board competition is now on the schedule, as is big air competition, with jumps being measured electronically.

Aruba Hi-Winds is a non profit organisation, run by volunteers, depending on sponsoring. Every year two interns from a University in Holland come to set up every detail of the organization, to look for sponsors and to manage the social media. This year we welcome Patrick and Tobias from Groningen, Holland.
