The Inertia

Austin Keen has carved out a pretty great little chunk of life. There aren’t all that many “professional skimboarders” on this planet, but of them, Keen is doing things that no one else is. Remember that time he skimmed into Kelly’s pool? Or that time he went wakesurfing with Diplo? Next, we’d like to see him take a page from Brad Domke’s book, but we can’t blame him for taking his time on that one.

But in the meantime, here he is foiling behind a yacht on the French Riviera. Yeah, that’s not something the average skimboarder can afford. And in a time when novelty surfing is reaching new heights, a foil, a mega yacht, and the French Riveria takes the cake.


Only the best. We promise.
