We are lucky to have some great riders on our UK team. These are the people who are at the events and on the beaches – feel free to approach them and ask about Ozone.
Ryan has been a part of the Ozone team for a long time. His stunning home spot on the west coast of Ireland feature heavily in his videos. Brandon Bay is famous for its big waves and strong winds – Ryan has made a name for himself riding them!
Ryan also offers lessons, coaching and tours through his school Kitesurf Ireland. The REO is of course Ryan’s weapon of choice in the waves. When it comes to working his way up the WOO leaderbord – its all about the EDGE.

With the wind on its way, fingers crossed we haven't forgotten how to throw down. We'll be down the beach first thing tomorrow to make the most of what looks like a breezy start to a windy one next week.
