Tommy Carroll - Blind Skateboarder

From Carlos Burle, to Danny MacAskill to Diana Nyad. We recognise our inspirations from the last year.

Action sports haven’t always been particularly accommodating to those with disabilities. That’s starting to change on the snow and Tom Carroll is doing his bit to lead the way in skateboarding.

Carroll was blinded by retinal cancer aged two but has been skateboarding since he was 10. Watching him skate, it’s impossible to notice that he’s a guy who has never seen anything – ever – and taught himself by trial and error and the occasional fall.

Carroll is a reminder that nothing can stop us enjoying the sports we love.
