PREVIEW: Hi Winds Aruba 2008

More Editorial by Els Kroon
April 2008 Issue

A letter from Aruba in early February tells us preparations for Aruba Hi-Winds 2008—the 22nd edition of the annual windsurfing and kiteboarding competition—are in full swing.  The event will take place from July 2 till July 7 at the famous Fisherman’s Huts.

“The Aruba Hi-Winds has become one of the oldest surf events all over the world and is one of the biggest water sports events of the Caribbean,” organizer Willem de Vries states.  There will be different disciplines for windsurfing and kite boarding, alternating with several side events and spectacular beach parties. As always, Aruba Hi-Winds means the combination of great races and great fun.     

The success of the past few years is expected to bring more international participants, more spectators, and an even greater atmosphere. A large group of Windsurfing Curaçao is planning and preparing for the trip to the neighbouring island to participate, and they look forward to the new discipline that will be introduced.

Windsurfers will compete in down-wind slalom, long distance races, and freestyle competition. Kite boarders will compete in best trick and air time contests, long distance, and a new special discipline. More information will be published soon.  On the website, www.hiwinds-aruba.com, the Notice of Race can be found with information about accommodation plus great pics and videos.

Windsurfers and kite surfers who feel the vibe and want to come to the event or combine it with a holiday on “one happy island” are more than welcome at Aruba Hi-Winds 2008! For information, email: info@hiwinds-aruba.com or call Willem de Vries, tel: 00297-5638002.
