I kid, i kid. Ryan is one of the most happy, nice, fun people i have ever met. I am honored to call him one of my best friends. If any of you think he is cocky, you should meet him in person instead of behind your computer screen and you will take it back in the first five minutes of talking to him. That said, he is also one of the most skilled paddlers i have ever paddled with. He is an all-around badass who can creek, run waterfalls and playboat with the best of the best. I have paddled with him all over the county, taken him on his first creek, watched him grow up into a true badass with a smile on his face the whole time. He is one of the best on and off the river. I wish paddling had more people like him, would be a whole lot cooler sport.
