yan is one of those people that is impossible not to notice. His unique attitude, positive perspective and unfettered spirit are felt by anyone who witnesses him skate. While many spend much of their time searching for aesthetic spots to complement their skating, Ryan’s skating compliments the spot. With a controlled wildness that is only native to him, Casado shuts down every spot he touches -- a mystical mind pumping out seldom-seen stunts, fueled by a dedication rare to existence. Casado is a Eugene legend who, today, can be found in the streets of Portland, raising the bar and pushing the limits in the expression that we love so much called skateboarding.
