As the two-time winner of the 2020 and 2021 Foil Surf Racing League in Florida, we are looking forward to watching Austin grow and take his riding to new levels. â€œI am super stoked and excited to be a part of such a progressive international brand, that also represents Maui and the culture I am proud to have grown up in. I am looking forward to growing with the whole Naish team and taking my career as a waterman to the next level,â€ said Austin.
â€œI am personally very excited to see Austin joining the team. As a third-generation North Shore Maui ripper, I have been watching Austin over the years honing his board riding skills. He is humble, passionate, and talented, and will be a real asset to our brandâ€™s product development, promotional, and competitive sides. At the same time, Naish will be providing Austin with the well-deserved equipment and support that he needs in order to blossom to his full athletic potential.â€ â€“ Robby Naish
