The Naish story
Robby Naish looks back at the time when he began windsurfing and tells his story of the sport. He shares his dreams, his dedication to the sport and his own thoughts on some of the current pro windsurfers like Peter Volwater. We see the young Naish in action at the PBA World Cup 1986 at Zandvoort – Holland. He shows us that the king still rules when he surfs an epic day at Jaws – Maui.
Dutch ‘Wild Bird’ Peter Volwater talks about his dreams, his idol and shows how to realize the dream of becoming a professional windsurfer. In 1996 Volwater was PWA Rookie of the year. We follow him from the 10th edition of the Soulwave in Denmark. The flight continues and goes to Volwaters surfing friends in Hawaii and his second home country: Western Australia. Also starring the best Flying Dutchmen of the home country of the Dutch filmmaker: Tonky Frans and Kevin Mevissen.
For more than a year, filmmaker Spaako (Frank Borghstijn) followed the best windsurfers to the best spots of the globe. Spaako is a pioneer in windsurfing productions. He combines his professional movie background with his passion for windsurfing. The result is an action documentary with more than just action.
Surfer’s magazine (Germany) stated: “Wild Birds is not just one more of those action movies or predictable trick-to-trick videos, but an intelligent composed action documentary. The shots and music are edited perfectly. It’s obvious that Wild Birds is made by a filmmaker with a professional filming background.”
