Ryland Rubens pulls off his first Open victory of the season at the Seaside Reef Open Boys division.
He also advanced all the way to the semi finals of the difficultly contested Juniors U16. Rubens, currently 12 years old, enjoys stepping up a bracket because he says it pushes him harder and he can learn from the older surfers which makes him surf better. Ryland has also had three strait victories in the Explorer Menehuenes to top it off.
A Pacific Beach San Diego local, Rubens 6th grade, maintains a 3.6 GPA which makes this well-rounded surfer a true role model for all young surfers with a great future. Awesome work Ryland.
Ryland’s Sponsors: Billabong, Headhunter, Dakine, FCS, Sector 9, Rusty Surfboards, GromBomb, and South Coast Surf Shops.
