Oscar-nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger travels the globe with a legendary windsurfer and pioneering waterman Robby Naish, a 26-time world champion whose quest to master the world’s longest waves unexpectedly reveals his vulnerabilities as a competitor, mentor and father.
Throughout his storied four-decade career, Robby Naish has been a watersports pioneer, ushering once-niche activities like windsurfing, kiteboarding, stand-up paddleboarding, and foil surfing into the forefront of the global sports community, racking up 26 championship titles along the way. It is this lifelong quest to master all obstacles that led Naish to his latest undertaking.
The Longest Wave offers a rare glimpse into what motivates an athlete who has everything to lose to push his body and mind to the limit. With a mix of intimate interviews and high-octane state of the art action sequences, the film provides more than just sensational sports action; It’s a raw portrait of one of the world’s most accomplished athletes, diving deep into what exactly makes him the champion and man he is today.
Legends take a lifetime.
