HISTORY

In the early years of competition Sasaki blitzed the competition scene in the US with his Dropknee skill. He notched up 5 Morey Boogie US titles and reached the finals at Pipe on many occasions. What set Keith apart from other DK riders was his abitity to throw his tail. He developed a unique style using his arm leash to help power his turns. Keith was also at the forefront of manoeuvres and was the first to do whatever the Surfers of the time were pulling on the waves. He was also one of the sports first true professionals developing a good working relationship with photographers and creating an image attractive to potential sponsors. After spending a few years in France, Sasaki has moved back to the US and still manages to throw the tail from time to time. pic Stroh
