Austin Keen continues his adventure into the unknown. This time, the dreadlocked skimboarder grabbed a long bungee rope and got towed by a boat at 45.5 miles per hour.
The idea came from Marco Thompson, an action sports entrepreneur with a taste for creative stunts. The duo made it a reality at Mission Beach, in California.
The visual result is quite impressive. Keen glides dozens of yards across the surface of the water, then jumps over the wake's whitewater, connects with it, and performs a wide variety of tricks.

It certainly looks like a 007 getaway chase sequence, but it isn't. Watch how Mr. Austin Keen hijacked a boat wake in Lake Down, Orlando.
Austin Keen is one of the most creative skimboarders in the world. He is constantly trying new moves in unexpected places, and helping push the sport into the future.
Skimboarding offers multiple riding possibilities. You can grab a board and catch waves, but you can also go for a flatland skimming experience. And then, if you're as inventive as Keen, you can try skim boating.

Austin Keen has taken out the 40th Annual The Vic, at Aliso Beach, California.
The event has been organized by Victoria Skimboards, a company founded in 1976, in Laguna Beach. This year, The Vic was not officially part of the United Skim Tour (UST), but the contest didn't lose relevance.
"I do not think we could have asked for a better 40th. It was a plethora of waves, a dearth of sand, an intimate soiree of sand, shore break, and sun for all the die hard skimboard fans of the world," expressed Tex Haines, who co-founded Victoria Skimboards with Peter Prietto.
