Keegan Valaika is one seriously smooth rider. Hailing from Laguna Beach, California, this American prodigy quickly rose the ranks of pro snowboarders after demonstrating his skills on home patch of Bear Mountain. We like the skate-inspired flare he brings to his riding and his dedication to filming some of the raddest parts in recent years. It just goes to show why this sick rider deserves so much respect.

So far, we've seen the likes of E-Jack, Blauvelt, Forest Bailey and Helen Schettini featured on these beautifully shot Adidas' mini-movies. Here we get a chance to see what makes Keegan tick, a little delve into his background plus some banging shots of this progressive rider at work

After all, he didn't earn Snowboarder Mag's Jibber of the Year award for nothing!
