A Conversation with Ryan Sakal of Ryan Sakal Surfboards

Our guest this week is a second-generation Surfer/Shaper that grew up in an amazing surfing

family that continues to be a staple in the Surf Community with their Family Surf Shop, Sakal Surfboards on Main St. in H.B. Groomed at an early age to become a Professional Surfer, he also had the privilege to grow up inside the shaping room. His dad, Ed Sakal, has passed down all the knowledge and skills to give him all the tools to finish a board from start to finish at the young age of 14. But, it was his surfing ability that shined in his early years with clean style and polished surfing that landed him many endorsements, magazine shots, and years traveling the world testing out his designs in the world’s best waves. He has continued shaping and refining his craft for the last 30 year under the Family Label, as well as the legendary Chris Christenson Surfboards. He is also no slouch on a Dirt Bike either and is a regular stand out in the Pro Class at Surfer-Cross with multiple wins??!! We welcome our friend, ripper, and all-around solid human Mr. Ryan Sakal, Ryan Sakal Surfboards.
