The Inertia

There are only a few people who come to mind when one thinks of skimboarding in the surfing world. Brad Domke (remember Puerto?!), Blair Conklin, and Austin Keen. Yes, there are plenty more, but those three are at the top of the heap. A few weeks back, Keen dropped an edit that went super-viral. In it, he sprints for a Surf Ranch wave, drops his skimboard, and proceeded to slide into one of the most memorable waves in Surf Ranch history. In this video, Keen breaks down exactly how he did it… and we suspect that merely listening won’t make it any easier for anyone else to do.


Only the best. We promise.
