Last week’s set up at Bear Mountain for the Transworld Snow Trans Am was sick. After two hours of hiking the various features and laying down some sick runs, I ended up taking 1st place in the grom division! Big thanks to Bear Mountain, Transworld, Giro, Salomon for putting on an awesome event and special thanks to my sponsors GoPro, 686, Just Chill, JLab Audio, Kind Snacks, Shock Doctor and Game on Jerky. Can’t wait to defend my title in 2017!
Hi, My name is Keyser
Hi, everyone, welcome to my website! My name is Keyser and I am in the 4th grade. My younger sister, Kyra and I started snowboarding in February, 2010 and we quickly fell in love with it! My parents took us to Mt. High, which is only about an hour from our house, almost every weekend since we started. We even got a chance to snowboard in Mammoth that spring, it was awesome!
Because I love to do jumps and go down the hill fast, my dad started calling me "The Flyin' Filipino." My mom is Filipino and my dad is Irish-Ukrainian, "The Flyin Irish-Ukrainian Filipino" just didn't sound right, LOL! Because we have so much fun snowboarding, we decided to start this website , "The Flyin' Filipino". So learn more about me and my sister by reading my bio, blog and checking out my pictures and videos!

It’s official El Nino has arrived and so have I!!!! LOL So far the season has started off with a bang as I now have 4 sponsors (686, Shock Doctor, JLab Audio and Game on Snacks). The competition season is in full swing and so far, I have done well. I took 1st place in two rail jams, second in the other. I also won one slopestyle competition with a switchback 360, cab 180, straight air and back 360! I also took 2nd in the other slopestyle.
There is one more rail jam competition as well as one more slopestyle. If I do well, I am hopeful to qualify for Nationals USASA in Copper Mountain in March in both disciplines!

Check out my Sponsor Me video from clips I put together from this past season. It was a spectacular season even though I broke another collar bone and missed a month of the season. I still progressed and even learned back and front flips! Can’t wait for the snow to start falling again!
If you have any interest in sponsoring me, please hit my dad up on his email at firstname.lastname@example.org

As many of you know, this year was a tough year for me for snowboarding. The season started off awesome as I was home-schooled and was riding about 5 hours a day/6 days a week. Unfortunately, my season was cut short when I broke my collar bone during a competition. It’s been about 10 weeks from my crash and I am pretty much 100% (I have one more xray later this month) and am hoping they clear me to ride again. I am hoping that maybe my dad will take me to Mammoth for a few days to finish off the season. If not, I will be up at High Cascade again this June and can’t wait to get back on the snow!
Thanks for all your support and hope you see you on the mountain!

Everyone at The Flyin’ Filipino would like to thank all those who attended FPAC22 last weekend in San Pedro, CA! It was awesome to meet all of you and appreciate all the support you have shown me and my brand. We had a wonderful time and can’t wait for next year’s festival (wherever it might be!).
Thanks again and please start prayin’ for snow!

Here is a short edit of me doing some boxes and rails at Mt. High earlier this season.
Written on January 27, 2013
I woke up this morning thinking it was going to be a normal practice day on the slopes as I was going to get ready for my USASA Slopestyle competition at Big Bear tomorrow. But when my sister and I got to Mt. High we learned that Monster Energy Drink was hosting a slopestyle competition that included my age group, so I thought what the heck and entered!
The weather was horrible as it was wet and the snow was slushy, but the park set up was sick with a box or rail, a bonk, picnic table and two jumps. On my first run, I hit the box skate style, followed by a tailgrab at the bonk, boardslide on the picnic table. Then I fell on my first jump and grabbed a nose grab on the 2nd jump. Unfortunately, I did the exact same thing on my second run! I fell again on my first jump.
Unfortunately, not hitting that jump clean cost me 2nd place, but I did take 3rd. Not bad for not knowing I was going to compete when I woke up!

Also, the kind people down at S&S Ride Shop have agreed to sell some of our headwear at their shop and online, so be on the look out for that too!
Again, thanks to S&S Ride Shop and can’t wait to get back on the hill! Please, all of you, start doing your snowdance!!

I got my snow legs back pretty quickly and have already have done some new tricks. Some of the tricks I have been working on have been boardsliding the A-frame, spinning the long box, front boardsliding the bazooka rail and a 50-50, 180 out on the corragated tube. But my favorite so far has been a back lip, front board slide on the bazooka rail!
My dad and I spent Thanksgiving on the hill and l look forward to many more days on the snow (like this weekend!). Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and hope to see you all on the hill soon.
