Lester Kasai (skateboarder) grew up in Anaheim, California. He began skating at a young age and was one of the original "Sadlands" team skateboard riders. He was one of the top Pro Skateboarders that dominated the Skate City Skatepark, in Whittier, California for many years. Lester was one of the super stylish big air innovators of the 80's[citation needed]. The Sims "Lester" pro model skateboard was immensely popular[citation needed].

Lester Kasai emerged as one of the top competitors of vert riding alongside such pros as Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Christian Hosoi, and Mark "Gator" Rogowski.

The Madonna grab, invented by Tony Hawk, was named by Tony Hawk and Lester Kasai[citation needed].

Lester Kasai was the second person to do a McTwist a few days after Mike McGill. He wrecked himself on one shortly after and then quit doing them.[1]
