Rising through the junior ranks, the Newcastle goofyfoot had the eyes of the world focused on him to be the next rookie to make the World Tour until a series of ankle injuries sidelined him. He then did serious time rehablilitating his injuries. That was 2012 and 2013, fast forward to 2016 and he qualifies for the WSL World Tour - It just took longer than most expected. A Merewether local, Ryan honed his repetoire of progressive airs and slab-charging technique in and around the variety of breaks near home. He pings on the global surf radar with other famous Newcastle surfers like Mark Richards, Craig Anderson and Col Smith.
