Throughout his storied four-decade career, Robby Naish has been a watersports pioneer, ushering once-nicheÂ Â Â activities like windsurfing, kiteboarding, stand-up paddleboarding, and foil surfing into the forefront of the global sports community, racking up 26Â championship titles along the way. It is this lifelong quest to master all obstacles that led Naish to his latest undertaking. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger travels the globe with legendary windsurfer and pioneering waterman Robby Naish, a 26-time world champion whose quest to master the worldâ€™s longest waves unexpectedly reveals his vulnerabilities as a competitor, mentor and father.Â THE LONGEST WAVE transcends the action sports genre by capturing obstacles outside of the legendary athleteâ€™s professional life in an intimate, cinÃ©ma-vÃ©ritÃ© style, revealing Naish balancing the pursuit of excellence at sea with the demands of lifeâ€™s complications on land.
Just weeks before his inaugural attempt at taming the longest wave, Naish suffered his first major injury: a near fatal hip fracture. With Robby also navigating a difficult divorce and financial tumult, his quest to return to the water takes on new meaning, as a volatile personal life and unwavering drive for professional performance escalate the already-high stakes Robby sets for himself. A personal story of drive, dedication, athletic conquest and self realization, Naishâ€™s tale is emblematic of universal themes that touch on all aspects of life.
