Armando’s Right

Armando’s Right

Armando’s Right is a spot named after Armando himself, the founder of Kitesurfing Aruba. The reason for this is that he was the first person to be seen surfing this place when other well-known surfers decided to search the coast on a day with a particular swell direction and size. You could have guessed already, this place does not break often, but needs specific swell parameters to start breaking. The wave start out steep and goes to a thick wave. On a big day the waves will continue and go from thick to steep again later on. Go with a local in case you're interested.
