Blind skateboarder Tommy Carroll

Blind skateboarder Tommy Carroll
Tommy Carroll has been skating since he was ten, but has been blind since he was two. This is one of the most inspiring things I’ve seen. Just watching him drop in was enough to bring a tear to my eye. Watch below!

    This was incredible. It hit me even more after watching this interview with Tommy by Tony Hawk. Tommy discusses the process of getting used to the park, and how he develops tricks. He even took out his prosthetic eyes! That’s when I got teary. He’s 100% bind, sees no light, just darkness. What an amazing inspiration.

    Woah this guy goes to my university, didn’t know he could skate. Really inspirational stuff.

    Skating with this guy at Northbrook skatepark (the big concrete one in the northen suburbs) was probably one of the coolest things ever.
