Walker Ryan, the man who always seems to have a smile on his face, released his debut novel last year and now the audiobook version is available too! Titled Top Of Mason, the book is set in the world of modern professional skateboarding—maybe the first of its kind—and takes place in San Francisco. To celebrate the audio release (read by longtime friend Rudy Behrens), Ryan has gone back to some of the SF locales that inspired his book—watch the video of this trip down memory lane (transfer from the 14 to the 22 Fillmore, and keep your wallet in your front pocket), above.
The 271-page book is also still available with worldwide shipping from the Old Friends site, and $1 from every book sale will be donated to Glide in SF which offers meals and shelter services to people in need.
Ryan has been super supportive of us here at The Berrics, and we’re very happy to see him flexing his literary chops when he isn’t landing perfect switch impossibles. Check out some of work we’ve done with Ryan over the years, below:
