Ryan Paul is another one of those ridiculously talented kids who has seemingly sprung out of nowhere in the US and made a name for himself through a combination of word of mouth, some strong online parts and a handful of good contest results. We first spotted him when he won the West Coast Invitational at Mammoth Mountain back in 2010 with a nollie frontflip to 50-50. Fast forward two years and he’s filming with the likes of Scott Stevens in the new Think Thank movie Mind the Video Man. And we’d hardly blame ‘em for getting him involved – his style fits perfectly with the Think Thank breed of rider with a really creative approach to hitting spots. How sick is that backside 270 rail to rail transfer at 2:12, and that backflip to ledge ender?
