Ben Wilson Surf has announced that Ryland Blakeney has joined the team. Ry will join the Global Athlete Program alongside Ben Wilson. BWS and Ry will also be working closely together in all facets of designing & R&D for 2011 and onwards.
Ben Wilson could not have spoken highly enough of his latest team member: 'BWS is really excited to be aligning with a rider of Ryland's caliber. Ry is at the forefront of kite surfing and shares the same vision of bridging the gap between surfing and kiting in the future. I'm also really looking forward to travelling with Ry. He charges really hard and wants to hit some big slabs on the kite and he really pushes my riding plus gives credibility to our vision.
Ry is feeling equally ecstatic, going on the record to say, 'I am so happy to be working with BWS. Ben has always had a clear vision for the surf-side of kiteboarding and I was stoked when the opportunity came up to ride for BWS. Ben has been a professional rider for years now, so he really knows the in's and out's of how it all works. It's great to have a company that wants to work with you rather than just telling you what to do. They know what I'm about and really want to support that, so I'm really excited for the future.'
