Ryan Hammond - Northcore™ Team Rider
Ry is a dedicated North Sea longboarder and has been part of the Northcore™ team since 2008.
After finishing 2nd overall in the British Longboard Union Juniors in 2007 he took a break from the competition scene and has only done a handful of competitions since. Over the last few winters he has travelled to the Canaries, Portugal and Australia where he spent 3 months surfing every day to try and progress to a higher standard.
In 2011 Ry is already pushing himself, surfing reefs on his longboard that are difficult enough to deal with on his shortboard. He is also making a return to the British Longboard Union this season and is hoping to travel down to compete on the European Longboard Tour later on in the year, before heading out to Australia again for the winter.
When he isn't in the water Ry can be found at the gym, on his decks, or at the nearest public house with his friends!
