Jack The Ripper Lindholm was the sports first media identity and it was mostly due to his unique style of riding at Pipeline. Jack rode in a crouched position with one knee dropped and his body further back on his board than how most Dropknee riders do it today. It was labelled the Jack Stance after him. Years later it became known as Dropknee. This sequence by Tom Boyle appeared in the 1983 Dec issue of Surfer mag, the article by Tom was called Boogie To The Max.
