Keegan Valaika was once a child star, and the limelight shone on him brightly. He was the next “it” kid, the one who could change things for the better in the coming years. But that limelight shone a little too brightly and forced Keegan off the path of least resistance and before long, he had become one of snowboarding’s most notorious free thinkers. After numerous acclaimed video parts with his former sponsor Burton, Keegan packed up and hit the road in search of creative outlets and individuality, and now, with a clothing brand in his possession, a concrete spot on the adidas squad, and a new outlook on his career after a taking some time off last winter, Keegan is set to take over yet again, all the while letting everyone know exactly what’s on his mind.

“Keegan dances to the beat of his own drum in a rebellious yet inspiring way.” Jake Blauvelt

“What is the point of being here if you are just going to be ‘other people’. You cannot be doing what someone else told you is right just because you believe them. You have to question everything.“ Keegan
