How does an environmental project manager by day become a standout at Mavericks. A break that attracts the best big wave surfers in the world. It is not an easy place to be a standout. He does it with talent, grit and passion. Making the semi-finals at Mavericks twice, this alone puts him the ranks of top professionals.
Ryan honed his big wave water skills as a grom at Ocean Beach, a challenging surf break outside San Francisco. In addition to his day job, he serves on the Board of Save the Waves. To quote Ryan, “Every time I go out at Mavericks it is special. Looking back at the mountains and the rocks it is beautiful and amazing. It clears my mind and all of life’s stresses go away.”
