This Blind Skateboarder Is Pretty Damn Impressive

The excuses we come up with that prevent us from doing the things we want to do, basically suck. Dan Mancia is nearly 100% blind, and he not only skateboards better than I can walk, but he falls gracefully to boot.

Daniel Mancina is a 29-year-old skateboarder, but he’s not your typical skateboarder. Mancina has an eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa, which is a hereditary degenerative disease that slowly deteriorates your vision from the outside in. Mancia uses his white cane and a small device tucked away in the box he built that makes a constant beeping noise in order to skate( Mancia listens for the beep in order to locate the grind box or ramp.)

At this point, it’s just bragging. C’mon, Dan.
