How did this kid from Laguna Beach, California get so good? Must’ve been the winters riding Colorado. Then again, his style just screams Bear Mountain. Yeah, he rides there, too. Keegan is going through growing pains to evolve from a street rider into an all-around threat. Rounding out his game and having fun while he does it.
