I was surfing Oside one afternoon and the waves were pretty fun. The tide was dropping and the waves were getting a little bit better shape but racey. I had to take off for work and went in just as Keanu and some of his San Clemente crew paddle out. As I was at the showers looking at the waves, I see these super fast 3 backside snaps in a row with spray shooting to the sky and it was Keanu. His backside games is sooo good. I know its the acher not the arrow, but i've been wanting to try one of his boards for a couple years now.Surfed with Keanu during the summer. Wade was out with Zeke, Seth, and Gen. They were swapping boards and giving Wade feedback. A drone was following Keanu and he threw a really high spray on a bs snap it almost got the drone. Keanu’s backhand surfing is super solid, his technique, where he positions his turn on a wave and his style is textbook. Plus he throws buckets for a smaller duu.
When i saw him at trestles with Ezra and Josh (Moniz) we talked and thats when he said I could check out some boards and he'd sell me one. I was stoked!
