El Camino Chapter 6: Bryan Metcalf-Perez

Bryan Metcalf-Perez (and friend) feature in the latest instalment of Ride Engine's El Camino rider series…

Chasing epic sessions often entails Jedi focus on the conditions and preparedness for strategic strike missions or waiting for extended forecasts. For Bryan Metcalf-Perez, the thrill of chasing the session means much more.

In Chapter 6 of El Camino, we get a deeper understanding of how Bryan perfects and hones his crafts of windsurfing and wing foiling. A constant dedication to chasing the session may not always turn up the best conditions, but from Bryan’s point of view, epic sessions are about learning new techniques and progressing in the sports he loves.

“To start back at the beginning and go through all the steps is very refreshing… sharpening my next knife to do the next turn, to do the next air, to experience the environment in a new way….”
