Meet Keanu from Laguna Beach, CA.
The one word that best describes Keanu's life today is "Awesome." The reason Keanu chose this word is because he gets to do a lot of cool things like skimboarding, stand up paddleboarding, bodyboarding and spend time with his twin brother Zen.
If Keanu could change one thing in the world, he would "Want the ocean to be clean and the water to be warmer." The way he would go about making this change is to pick up trash in the ocean while on his SUP.
One year from today, Keanu would like to get barreled on his skimboard.
If Keanu's life were a movie, it would be about skimboarding, stand up paddleboarding, and bodyboarding with his twin brother. The title of Keanu's movie would be called "Keanu Skims."
I've seen Keanu down at Oak St. for the last year and have watched him learning how to skimboard with his brother Zen and mother Naz who was our one person on Day 204.
Keanu is one of the coolest kids you'll ever meet. He is about to turn 8 years old and already has more time in the water than most grown adults. On most days after school, you can find Keanu on the beach practicing his turns on his skimboard.
On most weekends, Keanu will be on his SUP on the hunt to ride some waves. During the summer, Keanu takes skimboarding lessons from World Champion Austin Keen. If Keanu continues on the path, he could be a future world champion skimboarder.
I asked Keanu if I could be his first interview before he becomes famous so that I can say I knew him when he was a grom. Remember to always have fun Keanu and you'll live an "Awesome" life!
