BRYCE WETTSTEIN

As one of the top transition-terrain skaters in the world at the young age of 15, this Encinitas, CA native has been skating and surfing since she was 5 years old and is also currently a full-time honor student. Soon after she began skating, her family built a backyard mini-ramp that has since evolved and morphed into a wooden bowl, affectionately known to the community as the Iguana Bowl.

Bryce is one of only four women named to Team USA in 2019’s for Skateboarding’s inaugural year in the Olympic Games. Competing in the Vans Pro Park Series for the past three years, Bryce made the podium once and qualified for the World Championships every year. In 2018, Bryce placed 2nd at Dew Tour Women’s Pro Park and was an alternate for the X Games Women’s Park in Minneapolis. Bryce has been competing in the World Cup Skateboarding tour for the past seven years and this year she also skated with the Nitro World Games during its women’s skateboarding debut.

Beyond competition, Bryce truly cherishes the camaraderie, traveling, and adventure that these high-caliber contests bring. She’s made some lifelong friends through skateboarding and gets to travel the globe with them and explore new countries together. When she’s not on her skateboard, you can find Bryce surfing, playing volleyball or writing songs on her ukulele. This well-rounded teen aspires to go to college and become a scientist one day.
