• 2017 Rewind with Ryland Rubens

18 year-old San Diego native, Ryland Rubens, had a pretty epic 2017. He showed his potential throughout the year, earning himself the 2017 North America Junior Regional title, & will be a threat to the QS as he makes the shift into a full-time competitor next year. Watch and enjoy these highlights of the young ripper going to work down in Mexico & Central America, & be ready to see a lot more from Ryland both in & out of the contest jersey.

Ryland on his edit (via Surfline):

"I wanted to showcase some of my travels throughout the year [in this edit], because I was lucky enough to be able to travel to some beautiful places with some awesome individuals," says Rubens. "My favorite trip had to be Costa Rica, because even though I was only there for like a week, I lucked into some super fun tubes with friends, and we had a great time. I was involved in the edit to an extent, but I just let Sean Benik come up with something he felt would look cool and different. Luckily, he's a super talented editor and a good guy, so it made the process that much easier."
