The middle member of Ventura's brothers Malloy. Keith is another surfer who's career was made by Taylor Steele. He and his brothers were featured in all of the early, best selling Poor Specimen videos, which turned the surf industry spot light in their direction.
Keith left the world championship surfing tour to chase giant waves around the world. He is an icon in the surfing community because of his style and embodiment of "old school" ways. After catching the wave of his life (a Sixty-foot ride at Maverick's) he couldn't refuse the invitation to visit a region of the world that has never been surfed or climbed. He dons a beard full time, makes crazy Baja trips in his grease-powered truck and icy cold surf trips to Canada with bears. He is a world-class bodysurfer, barehand lobster grabber, and power surfer. But still finds time volunteering with Surf Aid, an organization that promotes awareness about malaria to small tribes in Indonesia. When Keith speaks, you undoubtedly listen because, despite his age, he has seen it all.
