First and foremost, Matty Ryan is a loose cannon. He’s a reckless individual on and off his board, but he’s also a creative individual, a business owner, and a good friend of ours. As real people and hard partiers do, Matty’s had a lot of ups and downs over the years but he’s alive, and he along with co-conspirator Nate Bozung is now a proud co-owner of BozWreck Snowboards—the hard goods extension of their SLC based empire. Keep an eye out for Matty and the rest of the BozWreck crew as they put together the third installment of the BozWreck trilogy this year–BozWreck 3000.
