Ryan is a 21 Year old charger from the Sunshine Coast in Australia. This year, Ryan has chased major events on the World Surfski Series with great sucess, including the gruelling Molokai World Championship (for a 3rd time!) along with the Canadian Surfski Championship and Gorge Downwind Championship (USA). He is now back in Australia preparing for the down under summer ahead which includes The Doctor in Western Australia.

Ryan loves to compete and recently placed 4th overall in the US Surf Life Saving National Championship at Long Beach, CA. 

Vaikobi is stoked to have Ryan on the team. His enthusiasm and approach to everything fun and worthwhile is infectious and we always have a blast when he is around!
