With ample talent both prone and Dropknee Hawaiian bodyboarder Fred Booth took an alternative path by focusing on his free surfing skills instead of chasing points in contests. During the Hawaiian season Boothy was one of the main standout performers at Off The Wall and Backdoor with big moves like this frontside lip launch photo taken by Joe Libby Circa 90′s.

Fred Booth was one of the standouts both prone and dropknee taking full advantage of the almost photo studio setup. Seq of Freddy below by Libby.

When it came to Dropknee the Hawaiians were definitely leading the way throughout the 80′s and 90′s. Names like Jack Lindholm, Kainoa McGee,Keith Sasaki, Aka Lyman, Kyle Maligro, Harry Antipala,  Joey Viera, Robbie Gall and Jacky Buder are just a few of the standouts.
