Ryan Grew up in San Clemente, California where he honed his skills at local breaks like Lower Trestles and T-Street.  

Although an avid surfer, his interest in the ocean reaches far beyond his shortboard. Ryan now works as a marine biologist and lucky for us, he shares his knowledge of the ocean on our site. Ryan covers articles including surfing as well as tackling any ocean related article.
