Welcome to the Ozone team Ryland Blakeney
We often hear the saying in life “as one door closes another opens”. Well guess who just walked in the door at Ozone HQ, Ryland Blakeney, thats who – Ryland is a world renowned kitesurfer, well known for his exceptional wave riding skills utilizing kites, and a fearless go anywhere in any size surf, attitude.
Born in Perth and growing up on the coast Ryland has always surfed, once kiting came Ryland was an early adopter and has chased the wind and waves ever since.
Ryland recently spent some time shooting and testing kites with designer Rob Whittall and test rider Torrin Bright, stay tuned for some shots!
Here are some words from Ryland – “I had an awesome time with great conditions. Wind everyday and good swell all week! And we got to fly every size kite in the range – loving the kites too by the way, should be a big hit for 2015!”
