If it wasn’t for Ryan Harris, there never would have been any SHUFFL video. The acronym SHUFFL was created by some of Ryan’s OG skate homies and Ryan started repping it down in San Diego. Somehow it caught on and after awhile we decided to make a homie video. Since SHUFFL stands for Skate Homies Underground Family For Life, it seemed fitting to call the video The SHUFFL Video.
Ryan’s part came together easily because the dude is always busting his ass and always filming. He’s spontaneous and never seems to walk away from any session without getting an amazing clip or two, with a trick he’s probably never even tried before. The only dilemma for this part was finding a song. We tossed around ideas for months and nothing seemed just right. Ryan had his heart set on Money For Nothing by Dire Straights, but Ivery wasn’t down. The night before the premiere we still had no Ryan part and so I started piecing together his part to his original song choice. By 6a.m., Ivery had finished what I started and his video part was starting to come together. In the end, the finished product came out perfect in my opinion.
Ryan’s the ideal ATV shredder and will skate any and everything in his path. Look out for Ryan because he’s on the come up and you’ll surely see more of him in the future.—Walker Ryan
