Born in Vecindario, Province of Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Aridane finished his formation with Deportivo de La Coruña, making his senior debuts with the B-team in the fourth division. He achieved promotion to the third level in 2007, being relegated two years later.
In the following years, Aridane did not settle with any team, representing Real Zaragoza B in division four and Universidad de Las Palmas CF and CD Leganés in division three. In January 2012, he signed with CD Tenerife in the latter, scoring 25 goals in 37 games in his second season (adding three in two contests in the playoffs) to help the club return to the second tier after two years out.
On 1 September 2013, Aridane played his first professional match, featuring the last 27 minutes of a 0–2 away loss to CD Mirandés. He scored his first goal in the second division seven days later, in a 2–2 home draw against FC Barcelona B.
On 6 July 2015, aged 28, Aridane terminated his contract with Tenerife and moved abroad for the first time in his career, after agreeing to a two-year deal with Bangkok Glass F.C. in Thailand. On 1 February of the following year he returned to his home country, signing a short-term deal with CD Mirandés in the second division.
On 3 August 2016, Aridane joined Albacete Balompié, freshly relegated to the third level. In his first season in Castilla-La Mancha, he contributed 18 goals in 39 games as his team were promoted as champions, including the extra time winner in the play-off semi-final against CD Atlético Baleares.
