Starting off as a world champion skimboarder, Austin Keen got behind a boat in 2015 and instantly made a name for himself with his insane skills, impressive creativity, and of course all the great viral videos. This past year he got his first Liquid Force pro model board and skim riders everywhere rejoiced over how insanely fun the board rode. There is no nonsense to this skim shape… it is designed to give riders the speed, power, pop, and board control to take anyone’s skim skills to new levels.
A full carbon fusion deck keeps the board extremely light while giving it the strength and responsiveness for those explosive tricks. Built with a classic surf core, the board has an EPS foam core and stringer throughout the belly of the board. A clean, single concave hull allows the board to plane on the water easy and sustain speed. Sharp, crisp rails from the nose to tail gives the board an aggressive feel and the board control necessary to execute spins, shuvs, and more! Unique from most other skim shapes, the Keen has a triple fin box option and comes with three small skim style fins. Ride it as a single fin, twin fin, or even a thruster!
Not your beginner skim shape, the Keen is designed for those wakesurfers who are comfortable riding on a skim style board and are ready to jump onto a high-performance shape.
“My board is perfect for going fast and skimming at a high level.” -Liquid Force Team Rider Austin Keen
