About JR

Jeremy Ryan started surfing at age 13. By the time he was 14, he started competing in amateur contests. Four years later Jeremy entered the most prestigious amateur contest in North America, at Lower Trestles. Without any major sponsorship prior to the event, Jeremy went on to win the esteemed NSSA National Championship Title.

After the win Jeremy decided to leave the amateur ranks and focus on pro contests. In his first professional event, Jeremy took 3rd place; which kicked off his pro surfing career. After competing in the World Qualifying Series for several years, Jeremy turned his focus to traveling the world freesurfing while still competing in select events. From his amazing experiences on the WQS, his love of travel was born.

Jeremy’s unique and powerful surfing style has been featured in numerous surf films such as “Yield”, “arutneV”, “UFA” and many others. His surfing has also been featured in company ads and editorial photos in many magazines including Surfer, Surfing, and Transworld Surf.
