Tyler Redy was born on January 27th, a storied date in surfing history. As a grom he surfed the L – Jetty in Avon with his close-knit surfing family and began his path towards legend status. Tyler can handle the work of 10 groms, and never complains for a moment. His approach to life inspires everyone around him, as he makes his way through tube rides and obstacles with grace and style. If you know Tyler’s surfing, you know he his one of the leading goofy-foots in the area, but due to his humble demeanor, it may not be as apparent that he his also a leader on land as well… As the oldest son of the Redy family, Tyler not only big brother to Bailey and Abby, Tyler celebrated as a big brother to all groms in Avon-By-The-Sea.
