Easy Lee is always such a nice guy. Wasn't he on ATM Click?

Sick post.

YES! Is that fs crooks photo the same spot as Guy's noseslide pop-over in that old fourstar ad? If you remember that one, I'd love to see it again. It was on my wall back in high school and I haven't seen it since.

Lee Smith! Went out with a bang with that FTC part. Always enjoyed his tech stuff, these photos are all very nice! City Stars part was good too.

Q: Where did Lee disappear to?
A: Dude dipped out to Barcelona for a HOT one (answer courtesy of 48 Blocks).

Shame that Menace video took forever to come out.

Saw him about 4 months ago working at Diamond in LA..

Keith said...

wow... he never got a check out until Menace was called All City? crazy.

That bs 180 backward nose grind 180 out sequence... awesome!

I remember when he got on Santa Cruz and all I was thinking was "WTF, what a weird combo"

he always comes through when you least expect it, even on chrome ball.

Yes good shit, never seen that fs crooked picture. His part in those SF greatest misses videos are sick too.

Damn, those bump to grind/slide are so good. Got me amped. G'd up from the feet up, but down for the crusty street spots.

thanks guys

hairfarmer, i'll dig it up. how you been, homie?

yeah k, a full-length menace video during the o.g. team's prime remains one of the biggest what-if's in skateboarding history. such a shame.

what's up Ricks!

keith, wasn't around the time welsh got on SC as well? still think that was weird.

mcidraque, thanks for the vid. keep 'em coming.

thanks frank. sick part.

thanks guys. i know the menace ads are the immediate draw on this one but i was really digging those two bump photos as well.
