VIDEO: Dancing on a wave

Austin Keen is a 24-year-old professional skimboarder. Like all skimboarders who live in California, Austin seems to be living a life of fun.

In this new video he tries wakeboarding with a twist: Beginning with a running start from the beach, he skims out to a passing wakeboat and “hijacks” the wake midstream.

The short clip was released as a teaser for a lengthier version that adds the aerial perspective taken from a flying drone camera.

He makes it look ridiculously easy — and even pulls off a trick. He spins the board 360 degrees and lands it mid-wake.

As we said, it seems like fun to be Austin.
