    Who "suffers" from blindness?

    He doesn`t seem to be suffering if you ask me.

    He`s Blind, fullstop.

    I`m not skateboarder...but I`ll bet just going back and forth like that is scary/thrilling as hell when you can`t see.

    Tony is probably amazed to be honest. He probably heard of this kid and had to see it himself.

    Tony is a guy that has the most intimate knowledge of skateboarding in the world aside from maybe a handful of other people. He probably sees this and is in more awe than we may be.

    I could probably give him a run for his money. If i were blind.... not so much.

    @ AFTERSHOCK he said in the video he doesnt ahve to make sounds he uses the wheels and other sounds for sonar.

    That kid is awesome.
    If I were blind, I doubt I`d have the courage to do something like that.

    Reminds me of a quote I heard once. "Success is best measured by how far you have come with the talents you have been given."

    Tony Hawk is a tool. He has no personnality and the vocabulary of a twelve year old. Hell, h still looks like a 12 year old.

    I bet Tony Hawk got paid ALOT for that inerview.

    He still kicks my backside tho.

    I remember, a few years ago a friend who skates sometimes came over. he brought his board and i found an old, tanky one in my garage. I, being as cluless as I am, asked him how to start. He told me to just run up to the board and jump on.
    Confidently, I ran up, jumped on and fell, hitting the back of my head onto the tiles of my verandah.
    Haven`t tried skating since.

    Yeah so I met this kid before.
    I was skating with my friends in Glenview, IL

    He was getting in the way a lot and I thought is this kid blind or retarded?

    This was like 3 years ago
