The 15-Year-Old Force Behind Your Favorite Recent Surfboard Art

At fifteen years old, Ryder Biolos has quite an enviable job. 

As the daughter of Matt Biolos, the co-founder of Lost Surfboards, it seemed inevitable that Biolos would lap Lowers on a quiver of immaculate boards and pursue a career as a surfer. While Ryder does indeed surf, she took her own path and became a surfboard artist.

As kids, Biolos and her siblings spent a lot of time at the Lost Surfboards factory, messing around with shaping and painting foam blanks that the employees cut out for them. While her siblings simply enjoyed painting the boards, Ryder loved it and discovered she had a natural talent.
