The evolution of kitesurfing

… through the eyes of Robby Naish and Red Bull:

One of the first athletes to have gained long-lasting international fame in the sport of windsurfing  – Robby Naish won his first overall World Championship title, in 1976 at the age of 13. He later took to kitesurfing like a fish takes to water… and   in 1998 he won the kiteboarding slalom world title. In 1999, he won kiteboarding world titles in both slalom and jumping.

His successes keep notching up. Since 2006, thirty years after his first World Champion title, popular lines of sailboards, sails, and kitesurfing equipment are marketed worldwide under the Naish name. “We love what we do.  And we ride what we do,” he says.

We salute you, Mr. Naish.
