VIDEO. Legendary Robby Naish returns to his board in Hawaii
Robby Naish, multiple world champions of windsurfing and then kitesurfing, returned to Hawaii last week on his mythical windsurfing board that still bears sail number US 1111.
The 2020 surf season symbolically opened on Saturday, October 17 on the beaches of Hawaii. There is no doubt that Robby Naish will miss this opening on his island of Maui, which is why it is with his board and his mythical No. 1111 sail that he got into the water.
A few minutes and a few waves later, King Naish lived up to his windsurfing record: amateur world champion from 1977 to 1979, professional world champion in PBA from 1983 to 1987 and then in PWA in 1988, 1989 and 1991.
Overthrown by Dutchman Björn Dunkerbeck, Robby Naish switched to kitesurfing where he became world champion in slalom in 1998 and then in slalom and jumping in 1999 thanks to his three main specialties: table top, forward loop and longboard loop. . Three figures that he still dominates, almost sixty. Video in support.
