Published on August 3rd, 2021
Over the course of 40 years, Robby Naish won over 150 tournament victories and became a 24-time world champion, earning induction to the National Sailing Hall of Fame. His purpose in life every day was about competing and being an exceptional athlete.
So now in his fifties, as he figures out what to accomplish next in his life, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger travels with the legendary windsurfer and pioneering waterman whose quest unexpectedly reveals his vulnerabilities as a competitor, mentor, and father.
The Longest Wave documentary sheds light on Naish’s career during transition from competing to life after professional sport, a perspective rarely documented.
