Home Town - New York, New York
New York’s finest, Balaram was born September 1991, the youngest of three with two older brothers. One would not think that such talent could come out of New York…especially with those long cold winters. Balaram, however, was out everyday, rain, hail or snow. That passion for surfing is what got him to where he is today. He’s the real deal, living the dream, traveling all over the world from Australia and Mexico to Indonesia and Hawaii. You can tell that he has been brought up with respect by the way he carries himself and the way he is welcomed by people everywhere. Balaram, who will turn twenty this year, has a bright future ahead of him.
