Lee Ralph is a mysterious figure, most of the pro skateboarders from the late 80s went on to own companies and are now household names. Lee’s story is different.
"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."
