Dave was one of the original Skid Kids the group of Cronulla bodyboarders known for their charging at Shark Island and causing mayhem on land. What set Bal apart was his Dropknee skills. Dave possessed a powerful gouging style and daring lip launching moves that he made consistently, not like most of his DK rivals. Through the 90′s he battled Roach and Aka Lyman for top honors.Sponsored by Billabong and Manta for a while Bal had the distinction of having more Riptide covers than anyone else. Today Bals still ripping both prone and DK and is still an Island standout.   photo Stroh, Garie lip bash.
