JettyGirl: A one million
dollar check arrives in your mailbox with a
note that reads, "Half of this amount is
yours and the other half is to benefit the world
around you." How would you spend the money?
With the half of the money that would be given
to me to benefit the world around me, I would
give some to my school, some to my swim team,
and some to help starving people around the
world and help give them the essentials they
need to live a happy life. With the other half
that would be given to me, I would probably
buy a house somewhere warm with good waves and
save the rest ...maybe shop a little.
JG: Describe the best surfboard
you've ever ridden and why it was special to
Keenan: The board
that stands out the most to me was a purple
5'0" Perfection. I think it is the most
memorable because on it I got my first cover
shot in ESM when I had just turned 14.
JG: If you could travel
back to any time in history and hang with one
person while they go about their daily activities,
who would it be and why?
Keenan: I would
have to choose Jesus Christ. Seeing how He handled
different situations, how He treated everyone
around Him, and how He helped everyone He could
would have a huge impact on my life.
JG: For thirty days you're
stuck on a desert island with one book, one
song, one surf movie and one snack food. Which
ones would you choose?
Keenan: I like
the surf movie Trilogy so I'll go with
that one. A book about how to survive being
stranded on a deserted island would help me
out. Haha. For snack food, I'll have to pick
something that I can't cook and eat with the
help of my survival book because I'll be eating
any and all walking, flying, and swimming creatures
...yeah I'm that good. I guess I'll go with
some French crepes to hold me over 'til the
next kill. I have to pick a country song since
I'm from the South so I'm going with She's
Country by Jason Aldean.
JG: What is your best surf-related
memory of 2009?
Keenan: My greatest
2009 experience was in Nicaragua in July. It
was the first time I got to surf somewhere where
the majority of the waves were barrels.
