Presented by Boost Mobile.
Words by Mitch Tomlinson September 29, 2017

What were you doing at 14 years of age?

While we were probably playing with Tech Decks in maths class, Keegan Palmer is not only riding real-life skateboards, but he’s already doing it on a global scale with conviction. Having won virtually every major amateur bowl and park contest that exists, he’s now turning his attention to the pro battlefield – earning sponsorships from Nike SB, Flip, Independent, Bones Wheels, Bronson, Oakley, Boost Mobile and Mob Grip. Not a bad list, is it?

Despite being in his pre-teens, Keegan has been on skateboards for close to a decade, and it shows with his effortlessly slick performances. Having been raised in Australia since he was 2 years old, he now resides in Encinitas, California to focus on his career. Still, he’s already an upcoming globe-trotter, having just trekked around the world for the Vans Park Series.

With two video parts to be unveiled in the near future, Keegan’s resume is stacking up quite nicely – and it’s a little scary to think where he’ll be in just a few years time. See him in action here.
