Tommy Carroll has been skating since he was ten years of age. He was born with bilateral retinoblastoma cancer and has been blind since the age of two. His favorite thing to do is to wake up early and get to the skatepark early so he can use the fullest of his abilities and the empty skatepark to skate. Watching the video you’ll catch a few great teaching points.
1. Falling is a skill you get good at just as much as getting good at the sport.
2. Anywhere I go sound helps me get my direction and move through the park.
3. When you land a scary experience it brings reward.
4. Being protected helps him gain confidence and overcome an obstacle.
