Ryan Dematteis Bio
Ryan is a native of Massachusetts, having grown up surfing all around the nor’easter section of the country, mostly Martha’s Vineyard, New Hampshire, and the chilly southern coasts of Maine. He rode his first wave at age fifteen and has been hooked ever since! A local to “The Wall” at North Hampton NH, Ryan has also spent the past few summers on the island of Martha’s Vineyard just off the coast of Cape Cod. It was here that he was working to preserve the pristine marine environments and surfed the little known breaks along the cliffy south shore. He is CPR and AED certified.
He spent the majority of the past five years traveling the country in search of surf and new experiences in places like California and Hawaii. Ryan is now living and surfing in Carolina Beach, NC where he teaches surf lessons to all ages at the Tony Silvagni Surf School. Ryan is stoked on life and is always ready to teach surf lessons! He has been teaching at Tony Silvagni Surf School for seven consecutive summers.
