In our latest interview, we had a chance to catch up with Ryan Sherwood who goes by the handle @ floatgoat on Instagram. He is quickly establishing himself as one of the most creative riders on Onewheel. At a quick glance from his videos on Instagram, you might think Ryan would be in his mid-twenties judging by the way he rides and looks. But actually, he is a dad of 3 and approaching his 40’s in two years! He is a registered nurse living in New Jersey with his family and his fifteen year old son is his cameraman.
He played sports like soccer, baseball, hockey, swimming, and track growing up. Then in junior high school, Ryan got into surfing, snowboarding, and skateboarding. After testing a demo in his local surf shop he impulsively bought an XR and began sharing it with his kids. He told us in the beginning his kids were the ones using it more than he did. Despite not riding it much at first and almost on the verge of selling it he began using it more.
Once starting to ride more and more he quickly got hooked! Today he has several boards which include a couple of XR’s, a pint, and a Mcnugget. Ryan typically rides with his fifteen year old son who doubles as his cameraman. His videos have also caught the attention of veteran riders in the community. With his creative lines, style, and great video edits he has quickly gained over 1300 followers on Instagram in a short period of time.
