Ryan cut his teeth the hard way, figuring everything out himself. Doing trip after trip to work out tides, winds and the unique weather patterns that affect the surf on the beautiful stretch of coast from Durban into Mozambique. He got it so dialled, he started a little swell chasing program for friends. Needless to say, he became their best friends after some of the waves he put them into. The man has bush craft, fish craft and surf craft – indeed, he is a salty old seadog with accumulated knowledge way beyond his years. He knows all the locals intimately, which ensures not only an epic trip but a rich cultural experience as well. Oh, we forgot to mention he is the biggest grommet ever when it comes to surfing, ensuring you will be on it when you need to be! Hates to have a good time and a few laughs (check the photo for evidence of that).
