Introduction: In the water sport of windsurfing, one stands on a board and uses the wind to move along the water's surface. The front edge of a windsurfing board is often bent upward to provide stability while sailing into waves. Windsurfing boards are normally 11 feet (3.35 m) long and 5 feet (1.52 m) broad.
History: The sport of windsurfing has been practiced for a very long period. It was carried out for the first time in the 1960s, and since then its popularity has only increased.
Since the 1970s, windsurfing has gained popularity in Aruba. When sailors from Europe who were visiting the island first brought it to public attention, it began to gain popularity.
