Aruba is warm all year, 28-32┬░C. At night it doesn't cool down at all, it's only the sun missing, but the wind stays, so it can get a little chilly. You can count on some hotter days during the summer month (July, August, September). Aruba is mostly dry, even in the rainy season, the rain doesn't really last longer than 10 min. The water temperature is around 27┬░C, so forget your wetsuit!

Gusty winds, sideoffshore, can be dangerous. It's blowing here in Aruba Northeast all year long, maybe some lighter days in the month of September, October, November and in the beginning of December. But that only means it won't blow every day over 15 knots. The chance you can kiteboard are always 90%. Don't forget your small kite sizes! Days of 25 knots are quite normal. Sideshore wind in between Aruba and Palm Island.
