Started in 1987, at the age of 3. My dad was the one who got me into windsurfing, he was pretty keen himself, and that was why he named me after his idol Robby Naish. I have always looked up to all the windsurfers on the world tour, and making a living from windsurfing, as it has always been the way I wanted to spend my life.

Now I still look up to the guys at the top of the world, and the ones who sail with incredible style. My main ambition in life is to live it to the full, and win a world title, and hopefully inspire a lot of kids like myself to go out there and get into a sport that they love.
