Keoni Lasa – Basque Country Grom
I met Keoni last year when he came over for the Volcom Finals, held at Lowers. He drew a lot of attention due to his small stature, but incredible style and talent for his age / size.
Keoni is from the Basque Country which is an autonomous community in northern Spain. The region is famous for ardently holding on to the Basque language and culture. Other commonly heard languages of the regtion are mainly Spanish, along with French.
Keoni and his dad are visiting California before heading over to visit friends and compete in Hawaii. After that, they will be coming back to California to meet up with other surfers from Spain to have some fun at the US’s most famous break.
