By the late 90′s Roach, Aka and Ballard the three goofy footed kings of DK  combined interest in the sport was starting to wane. All of a sudden there was a huge void of DK talent and photos. Matt Lackey from the Gold Coast soon filled the space. Lackey a natural foot was super keen and worked with photographers and in a short period of time magazines were full of double page spreads of his stylish carving. Lackey was soon sponsored by Billabong and his mass exposure in there adv introduced his riding ability to the world. Today Matt continues to push Dropknee to a dying market. Once regarded as cool, DK has definitely had a drop in popularity and participants of late. Matt remains unfazed and continues to stay loyal to the cause.

Manny from Imperial Beach in California was never after the title as the best bodyboarder in the world but he was one of the sports most entertaining. During most of the  90′s Manny was a regular standout at Off The Wall, ripping Dropknee with big carves and snaps with his fluro coloured hair and wearing footy jerseys and other assorted unusual clothing attire. When The Shorey was firing he was out there as well pulling in all for the photo glory. These days Manny is a media mogul and behind the scenes guy,  a former Bodyboarding Mag editor and now contest announcer as well as a promotion guy. This pic showing Manny pulling in at the Shorey mid 90′s by Stroh.
