Red Bull King of the Air
Robby Naish

Robby Naish is windsurfing royalty. He is the man behind the rise in popularity of windsurfing; he gave it a face, pushed the sport like no one before and was always on the cutting edge of developing new materials and tricks. He is also a pioneer of kiteboarding and a world record setter, with his name being internationally renowned as the first person to have gained long-lasting fame in the sport.

At a young age, his father, competitive surfer and surfboard shaper, Rick Naish, moved the family from California to Kailua, Oahu.

It was there, at the age of 11 that Robby took up the then fledgling sport of windsurfing. Shortly after Robby claimed his very first world championship win at the age of 13, a feat that remains unbroken to this day. Robby’s latest stunt involved joining the Red Bull team in the Amazon for a crack at the ‘widest ride of a river bore on an SUP’, Guinness World Record. The attempt involved riding the famed Pororoca tidal bore on Brazil’s Amazon River, but here’s the catch, he didn’t follow the rest and ride down stream, he went across! Naish paddled 450 metres over the Arari Pororoca, crossing from bank to bank!


These days Robby is an international sports celebrity and has been featured in numerous films, videos, news reports and articles, and the Naish name adorns popular lines of sailboards, sails and kitesurfing equipment.

"A lot of people call me 'Waterman'," Naish said. "But I see myself as a 'board' person. It doesn't matter if it's surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand-up paddle, skate, or snowboard. I love the feeling of gliding, whether on water or some other surface."
