We have a video today that is unlike anything we have seen before, featuring Austin Keen, his skimboard and a boat. Austin Keen is huge star in the sport of skimboarding, but he is not someone who is associated to the sport of wakeboarding, but in the clip featured below he pulls of a pretty impressive mash-up of the two sports.
The clip begins with Austin pegging it down the beach, seemingly lining himself up with an approaching wave. After throwing down and jumping onto his skimboard he lines himself up with the said wave. As the camera pans round it becomes apparent this is no ordinary wave, but is in fact the wake from a speedboat. Austin times his run to perfection and picks the wave up at exactly the right point, with enough flair to even pop a shove-it air.
You can see the 15-second clip filmed by Sean Bailey and entitled ‘Hijacking a Boat Wake’ below. What do you think of this 2-sport crossover and Austin’s impeccable timing?
