Austin Keen hits the Surf Ranch

Austin Keen put on an epic display of skimboarding at the Surf Ranch, in Lemoore, California.

The intrepid rider from Savannah, Georgia, visited the artificial wave pool designed by Kelly Slater and showed the world why his skimming is such a versatile sport.

Keen, who is also an accomplished wakesurfer, was able to slide out to the wave on his first try, as he often does in other scenarios like rivers, lakes, and beaches.

Isaac Thomas will “Never Stop Skimming”

Isaac Thomas owns an interesting collection of rare skimboarding DVDs. They document the evolution of the sport since the turn of the millennium.

Times have changed, and the DVDs have been replaced by an impalpable medium: YouTube. However, the spirit remains the same – Thomas is riding his board for life.

“Never Stop Skimming” is a retrospective of his long skimboarding career. The edit includes Isaac’s creative flatland glides and performances in a series of well-known spots including Chambers Creek, Cypress Creek, Dash Point, Galveston, Port of Tacoma, Rollins Lake, Sacramento, Spanish Banks, and White Rock.
