Motivated by the love of windsurfing since the age of 3, Robby Swift has been an integral part of the Team for more than two decades. Robby’s world titles in Formula and Slalom, as well as his top three PWA world ranking positions in Freestyle, Super Cross and Wave, demonstrate his ability to excel in multiple windsurfing disciplines, proving him to be a well-rounded talent.

Robby is now involved with many aspects of the NeilPryde and JP brands from product development to marketing. His main love though is spending time on the water, either in perfect conditions, cruising with his kids or training for competition.


Between surfing, winging, foil surfing and windsurfing, I can spend over 300 days a year in the water which is a dream come true for a boy who grew up in the UK dreaming of warm water!

I still love competing as much as ever, but also get a lot of pleasure from sharing my passion for all my favorite sports with others, so I am starting to do more clinics and personal tuition as well.

For years, I have been very involved with the development of everything from sails and boards to fins and foils and I love the technical side of working out how to improve the already incredibly advanced windsurf gear that we ride. I'm sure this will be a passion of mine for a very long time!


Having come 3rd in Fiji the past 2 years in a row, I am really fired up to try to win a Wave World Tour event. I am still training full on for all the events but I reel like my strongest events would be Maui or Fiji.

I would definitely like to finish the PWA/IWT World Tour on the podium again at least once more before I retire!

I also love sharing my passion for windsurfing with my kids, my oldest son told me his dream is to compete at Pozo while I'm still competing so I guess I have a few more years to keep going and he had better hurry up and learn to do some forward loops!
