Austin Keen is kicking off 2021 in style. With the Laguna Beach shorebreak getting heavier, the World Champion skimboarder took both his skimboard AND his surfboard out for some sweet step-off runs with some of the top photographers in Southern California.
Getting barrelled: Arguably the most fulfilling, elusive phenomenon for surfers and skimboarders alike. Millions of pros and amateurs get out of bed every single day to chase that rush you get when the wave rolls right over top of your head. The tough part is, so many things need to go right in order caught in a barrel: the right wave, timing, speed, balance and more.
Lucky for you, getting barrelled just became a LOT more convenient. Austin Keen and friends are once again revolutionizing the action-sports world with their creativity. In his latest video, AK uses a tarp to create a barrel for people of all ages to feel what its like to be in the barrel. AK’s Tarp Surfing video shows you how anyone can feel like a pro surfer!
