Austin Keen doesn't need a real ocean wave to surf like a stud. The guy can make do with nothing more than the wake of a boat.

In a video uploaded to YouTube earlier this month, the pro from Georgia runs his skimboard into the water and rides a boat wake, even adding a nifty trick at the end. The clip, "Hijacking A Boat Wake," has collected more than 490,000 views since it was first posted.

Keen wrote on Facebook that he recently finished second in his first wakesurf contest. The post shows him holding a $1,000 check.

By the looks of his latest video, more prize money will be coming his way.
