"This Grizzly Adams stormed American vert skating in the 1980s, invented 10 or so tricks (many with his shoes off), and then disappeared as quickly as he'd arrived. People have been talking about it ever since."
-Lee Ralph's entry on Thrasher's 15 All-Time Most Beloved Skaters List, 2005
Figured I'd have a little fun today. Like skating itself, I never want this site to become too serious (where I kinda felt it was heading this week).
And plus, I bet I've had over fifty requests for this guy over the years.
Older dudes might know Lee as that scary-looking guy from New Zealand that used to skate for Vision while younger kids might recognize him as one of Malto's new "pro homies"... regardless the guy rips and I've always heard nothing but nice things about him.
The caption on the black-and-white Madonna photo is amazing.
