The very shape of the Divi-divi tree is poetic testimony to the patient consistency of Aruba's cooling trade winds. So is the fact that Aruba is host to the annual Hi-Winds Windsurfing Pro-Am Grand Prix World Cup Tournament, an event that requires a good bit of wind just to announce.

Aruba's fame as a windsurfing destination has attracted some of the most skilled competitors, and instructors, in the world. Novices can take advantage of the gentler winds and abundance of equipment and instructors along the island's southern shore, and advanced students and experts have a choice of any number of prime locations along the northern and southeastern coasts. Aruba has earned the name of the Windsurfing Capital of the World.

Every year in June, Aruba hosts the Hi-Winds Amateur World Challenge windsurfing tournament. This competition attracts the most competitive professional windsurfers and hundreds of amateurs to the island of Aruba and is sanctioned by the PBA (Professional Board sailers Association).
