Story by The Inertia.

Ryan Burch is far from your average surfer. He doesn't surf just one kind of surfboard. He's not a "thruster guy" or a "twinnie guy" or a "longboarder." Ryan Burch is a surfer. He knows surfboards incredibly well-he knows what those tiny little tweaks in certain things will do and he knows because he's an incredibly talented surfer.

Whatever he's on, he's surfing it better than 99.9 percent of the population, and there's a good chance he shaped it himself. The footage you see above was filmed by Tatsuo Takei months and months ago, well before the Coronavirus lockdown. But if you're dying to surf right now, it might not be the best medicine.
