Ash Richardson, humble, wide eyed, and soft spoken. “Ash Ritchie” Explosive, tattooed, and wild. They are one in the same. No alter egos, just a guy who loves to surf and share with the community. Hailing from The United Kingdom, and having grown up in the South of Portugal and Barbados, 31 year old Ash Ritchie integrated into the developing wakesurf community with a series of surf film edits, which displayed manoeuvres that are rising the bar within the Russian surf community, without compromising the true surf style. Sponsors like Xcel and Soulcraft, quickly noticed his progression and reach to the Russian audience and stepped in to support the virtually unknown surfing Brit.
