About Balin

Born on 08/09/2005, Balin’s middle name Vogn (pronounced Vaughan) is the initials of his grandparents Velia, Olwyn, Graham and Neville. Balin’s dad Michael has Indian ancestry. In Hindi Balin means “soldier” and in Indian “Mighty Warrior”. Mick is also an avid surfer so the surf brand Balin also had an influence.

Balin was loved across the whole Sunshine Coast and surronds. His fun-loving, free-willed and bright spirit was sure to make everyone smile. From surfing and wakeboarding to acrobatics, Balin gave everything a go.

Mick and Kez want to say a massive thank-you to all those who have supported them in the wake of Balin’s passing.
