Six Pack with Ryan Reyes

Six Pack with Ryan Reyes
Six Pack with Ryan Reyes at Bondi Beach Skatepark (a sixer of Fosters and $35) for Independent Trucks

Ryan Reyes has led an interesting skateboarding life: he lived in the skate industry Mecca of Southern California for years but it took a random move to Arizona for Reyes' talents to really begin to get noticed. Steady ripping for years, Reyes languished on the Black Label flow program just outside of the spotlight. A proper hookup from Ipath led to bigger and better things and now Reyes also has a coveted spot on the Creature skateboards am team. Here is how Ryan Reyes got on the Creature team: “Shawn Hale was on a Vox trip with Darren Navarette. Darren was looking for someone from Arizona and it worked out. Darren and I chatted about it and we went on a trip. The Creature team didn't hate me so now I'm on and I'm hyped.”
