“It's definitly an advantage to grow up surfing in Laguna.”
...And how. Not only does Laguna Beach provide the best coastline in the world, it's situated at the surf industry's epicenter. Truly, what better motivation to become a pro surfer is there knowing that the big team managers are always scouting at your home break? In Ryah Arthur's case, Billabong came knocking at age 20. And life hasn't been the same since. As one of the hardest working surfers in the business, Ryah goes above and beyond to get his image out there. Aside from global travel and training, Ryah pens guest columns for numerous local publications. It seems like everyone wants a piece of this kid, and we can't blame them.
