Favorite Boat Color: Regal
Growing up on a Lake in New Jersey Ryan is no stranger to boats or anything boat related. Before he had a car he would commute to work via two stroke 85HP Johnson outboard motor that left him stranded in the middle of the lake more times then he would like to admit. Wakeboarding behind his first boat (Ploop Jumper) led Ryan to his first job at the Malibu dealership/ Marina on Lake Hopatcong (New Jersey’s largest lake). Ryan has spent time doing just about everything there is to do at a dealership and marina. From working on the docks, acid cleaning boat bottoms, winterizing boats, wakeboard lessons, to organizing wakeboard competitions, he can’t stop and he just simply won’t stop. Ryan’s first demo boat was a Regal, Ebony, White 2004 Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV with Skylon Defcon 4 Tower Speakers. Those speakers were absolutely unnecessary but were absolutely a must have that year, says Ryan whom put over 300 hours on that boat during the Summer of 2004. Some sing about the Summer of 69′, Ryan sings about the summer of 04′. When it came time to further his knowledge of boats he attended MMI (Marine Mechanics Institute) in Orlando Florida where he learned a thing or two more about what makes the prop turn. Ryan says maybe one day he will make his break into Hollywood where he can get his reality show off the ground called “As The Prop Turns”. Until then you can find Ryan at the Tommy’s Colorado store helping other avid boaters find the new boat of their dreams!
