Ryan Lovelace will dominate the world someday, as long as he's able to stay away from the hookers and blow. Those things will kill you, man. The best you can hope for is a deviated septum and syphillis. Dude is only 22 and absolutely killin it in the shaping room these days. He's more of a hull/fish/longboard shaper...you know, boards that are creative and fun, not those stupid thrusters. People are starting to pay attention and he's set to blow up any day now. It seems like every surf blogger who matters is writing about some incredible experience riding his boards. Ryan's got tons of soul, and I don't use that word lightly. One board at a time, he's bringing the fun back to surfing. Fun is what we need right now with all the bullshit going on in the world. Point Concept Surfboards just moved into a bigger shaping bay, so we'll be seeing SB's lineups clogged with more and more stylin rippers. A super cool write-up just appeared magically online...
