Was the 1979 when the Naish family opens’ in Kailua the Naish Hawaii surf shop. At the time, Robby had already’ won his first world windsurfing championship (1976) and the sailboard was in the midst of its global economic expansion. Research and development continually invented new solutions and the press and television used the sport as a vehicle for an attractive and dynamic image.
In this booming scenario, even though ecommerce didn't exist yet and the world distribution wasn't yet retail, Naish Hawaii soon became a symbol and a point of reference for generations of practitioners of those years.
In 1979, with the creation of The Naish Sails, Kailua's surf shop lost some of that reference’ of the golden years also due to the displacement of all Hawaiian windsurfer resources on the island of Maui that has already taken place’ a few years before, but it still kept its activity intact’ Family.
Today, however,’ Randy Naish, New10014, Robby's brother, also complicit in the restrictions due to the outbreak from Covid-19 to the US, on facebook announces its final closure:
“Our store closes its doors due to lock-down.
However, and’ with a heart full of sorrow that I must announce that the store that my family and I have called home from the 1979, will close the doors forever.
The decline of windsurfing, of retailers and greedy landowners have made it impossible for us to stay open.
$10.000 per month to rent a destroyed building in Kailua are too many. That sucks!
The city I call home, if you've been here over the years 70-80, now it's unrecognizable.
What I'm going to do? Reinventing myself? Maybe we stayed too long at the party.
If anyone knows a lawyer who wants to help me rip off our greedy landlord, get in touch with me!
All the stock and’ at sale price.
Aloha to all and mahalo to those who have supported us over the years.
A great aloha,
