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

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.

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.

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."

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

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.

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.

Who "suffers" from blindness?

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

He`s Blind, fullstop.
