Austin Keen stands on the vast beach of Tybee Island, Georgia, scanning its tiny waves moments before two dozen groms join him for a three-hour skim session. There's nothing like Skim Tybee.

At low tide and just a couple hours after sunrise on a steamy July morning, these South Atlantic coastal waters are no comparison to the epic waves of his current coastal home near Laguna Beach, California.

But while their current is weak, their meaning remains powerful. It was these waves that turned a teenage Keen from a surfer to a skimboarder just to pass the dead time in Tybee's still waters.
