A true believer in skateboarding, Austin Kanfoush is in this for life. The powerhouse from Pittsburgh skates fast and hard, pops high and takes a slam like it’s all part of the fun. Got a chest high ledge or rail no one else will step to? Austin’s got it. Maybe a massive gap or some double overhead transition? He’ll handle that too. With a smile at that.
After a youth spent skating harsh spots between melting snow patches in and around Pennsylvania, Austin moved west to California where he’d eventually link up with the Anti-Hero crew and settle in San Francisco. With a supportive lady and a newborn son, a passion for surfing gnarly waves and bombing gnarlier hills, Austin is at home in The City.
Now pro for the 18 and recently featured on Thrasher Magazine’s Thrasher Radio (Jan 2019), it’s clear that Austin’s natural talent and long-held appreciation for what skateboarding can deliver will only continue to serve him well into the future.
