A native of Elfin Cove, AK, Ryland is no stranger to riding the steepest and most technical lines in the mountains of Alaska. Riding alongside Jeremy Jones, Ryland has headlined in the award winning TGR films Deeper, Further and Higher and appeared in the Sweetgrass productions Solitaire and Valhalla. Growing up as a commercial fisherman, Ryland now tries to take his hard work ethic into the world of professional snowboarding. When he’s not pushing the boundaries of big-mountain freestyle snowboarding riding spines in AK or the Tahoe backcountry, you will find him salmon fishing off the coast of Alaska.
