I had a great event this year in Pozo, coming in 4th place. It was my first event back from my injury and operation last year, so I was very happy to be right back up there! We had really tough conditions. Winds up to 61 knots, 112Km/h. I broke my toe in the second heat of the double elimination and then had to sail 5 heats back to back with it broken. Many thanks to all my friends who helped me get through that pain and all the way up to just one spot...

Bad news, I broke my foot in Chile while sailing at one of my favourite breaks. Good news is that that means I have plenty of time to do things like updating my website and learning how to edit videos better. I’ll be back on the water soon. Hope you enjoy the new look site!

When I was born in 1984, windsurfing was just about at it’s peak and my dad, being a huge windsurfing fan and good windsurfer himself, named me after his idol, Robby Naish.
Since then, my family have helped me to pursue my love of windsurfing and become a professional sailor. Now I am lucky enough to travel to some of the best windsurfing locations in the world and compete at the very highest level in order to earn my living.
I have come close to realising my dream of winning a PWA world title, finishing 3rd in four different disciplines, three of them over consecutive years from 2003-2005. A couple of injuries held me back in 2006-2008 but in 2009 I was back at number 3 in the world and hope to win a wave world title very soon!
