Toronto, CAN. Bob Plumb.


It's not every day that the SNOWBOARDER Magazine Jibber of the Year comes out of Laguna Beach, California, but the latest addition to the BozWrecking crew Keegan Valaika is not your everyday jibber. Young Keegs honed his skills at Bear and Mammoth, the closest peaks he could consider a home mountain, until his recent move to the snowy streets of Salt Lake City, Utah. With a signature line of Burton boards in shops, standout parts in Absinthe's Ready, Burton's It's Always Snowing Somewhere, Bozwreck's Bozwreck 2, and a Jibber of the Year title in the bag, we can't wait to see how Keegan will test his mettle, on the metal, come next winter.

"Young and strong." – Romain De Marchi

"All of his video parts were sick, and he pretty much shit all over Jeremy Jones in the Burton video. And every other video he was in, he was my favorite rail rider to watch. He made Bozwreck!" – Danny Davis
