Paul Roach probably did as much for Dropknee just like Mike Stewart did for prone. With his skate inspired moves and power hacks Roach made DK  look too easy and inspired countless others to be just like him. Competing at Pipe early 90′s photo Hank.

I think this was the first or second time I ever got to shoot Paul Roach. I’d heard all the loud talk about this kid from Cali and after seeing him for myself at Maroubra this day I wasn’t disappointed. Taken early 90′s by Stroh.

Paul Roach many believe is a freak when it comes to riding Dropknee. Speed ,  power and style make up the basic formula to his riding but there’s also his spontaneity. You just never knew what this dropknee lord would do next on a wave. From Manta adv early 2000 photo Jack English.

Always a standout from the pack, check out Paul Roach’s Manta board covered in graffiti that he was riding on the Northshore around 2002. He called it his Dragon Dog Mullet board. It is now a part of Eppos collection. Photo Stroh
