Hadicurari Beach – Aruba
Hadicurari Beach in Aruba also known as Fisherman’s Huts, is a rocky strip out past the Marriott Aruba Resort, where windsurfers slice the water and the aeronautics of colorful kite-surf crescents punctuate the horizon. Once home to the island’s fishermen, it is a popular spot in Aruba for surfing enthusiasts and the venue for sporting events in Aruba throughout the year.

UPDATE IV: Below are VIDEOS of kite-baording in Aruba of some first timers, not that of missing John Grady. You can see the area where it is down, look how calm the water is. Come on man, really … YOU CANT FIND HIM? Honestly, how difficult could it be to find some one in calm seas? It is the equivalent of someone falling down on water skis. You would have a better shot of running into some one else kite-boarding, paddle-boarding, para-sailing, wake-boarding or swimming than not being found.
