The Rise Volume I

Ryan Briggs in PR/ …lost tv

Sunrise team rider Ryan Briggs has a new video clip of himself in Puerto Rico. It was filmed recently, i mean really recently, and its smattered with Briggsy’s trademark smooth style and a lot of nice rail work. I must say his surfing is looking mature lately and he’s clearly getting his custom Mayhem sleds dialed in, not to mention he’s moving a lot of water for a dude with such skinny legs! Good song, great edit and sunny PR, whats not to like? I’m curious exactly which …lost models he is riding in this clip so i will find out and let everybody know. I’m guessing a Driver or an F-1 or maybe even a Sub driver?

Cody wins the #ripcurlpro puerto Rico

Team rider Cody Thompson just won the WQS 4 star event in Puerto Rico. The biggest win in Cody’s young career will really help his bank account and his points on the WQS. Cody brought home a 15,000 dollar check for the win and 1,000 dollar check for the best maneuver!!! Good job Cody and all our team riders that ripped it up down in PR.. First round is on Cody when he gets back ; )
