August 22, 2019, Waikiki, Hawaii — Surrounded by family and friends at the famed Outrigger Canoe Club in Waikiki, Robby Naish was inducted into the Hawaii Waterman Hall of Fame.

Every year, a number of athletes are nominated for their contributions to ocean sports by their peers to join the Hawaii Waterman Hall of Fame. Robby joins an elite group of watermen including past inductee’s Duke Kahanamoku, Eddie Aikau, Rabbit Kekai and Brian Keaulana.

“Stoked to be inducted alongside Tracy Phillips Darling and Kai Lenny, joining a long list of Hawaiian watermen and women and raising funds and awareness for the Outrigger Duke Kahanamoku Foundation which provides scholarships to outstanding young athletes here in Hawaii,” stated Robby.

He is the first windsurfer to be a member according to their website. Kai Lenny is also a member, as a surfer.

Rob was surfing 40 years ago and winning World windsurfing championships aged 13, 43 years ago, I'd say they were just a tad late.

Yeah, a tad late is putting it mildly. If it was an award for a lifetime achievement waterman then I get, but then they should wait with Lenny's award. Oh well, he got it now.
