Keith brought style to the sport. In the 80′s he led the DK charge by pushing skate moves and breaking away from the mostly soft flat turns being performed by dropkneers of the past. Sasaki was doing barrel rolls, laybacks, floaters, re -entrys and constantly had his rail on the edge. Photo below of Keithy was taken on the South Coast at Potholes. Stylish as always Sasaki exits the barrel with his usual flair. Photo Chris Stroh  ’90.

Jeff Hubbard has a reputation for big aerial moves but he is equally happy taking on waves of consequences. Check out the slab of water known as The Wedge in California he’s about to cop on his head. At least it made the cover. Photo Hoover.

Terrigal on the Central Coast was home to  Tim Jones in the early 90′s. Jonesy was well known for his big wave heroics at the local reefs and points near his home town. When Tim ventured to Hawaii’s Northshore he revelled in the big stuff  like taking this Pipe drop in Jan ’93. These days Jonesy’s is one of the worlds best water photographers and its partly due to his days charging as a bodyboarder. Photo Chris Stroh
