The story of a blind skateboarder called Tommy Carroll, who has been completely blind since the age of two, when he lost his eyes to bilateral retinoblastoma (cancer of the retinas).
After picking up skating at the age of 10, he now relies on his highly developed sense of hearing to pick up the sound of his wheels on the terrain.
The video is part of the “Be Brave, Be Safe” campaign led by Amsterdam-based consumer safety organization VeiligheidNL in partnership with Dutch sportswear company Perry Sport, and includes Carroll talking about how important protective gear is to him as a skateboarder, since he feels comfortable enough to experiment and fall as he tests out new tricks.

I have been filming the Skyliners on an incredible exploration into the world of free flight.
Tancrède, Julien, Seb and Antoine are pioneers in ‘highlining’ - a vertiginous combination of climbing, slackline and tightrope walking.
We travelled from our home in Chamonix to our training ground in the Verdon gorge, testing the limits for our ultimate goal...
We rigged highlines on the skyscrapers of Paris, and finally came to the spectacular cliffs and fjords of Norway.
Months of training led the Skyliners team to attempt their dream of complete freedom... the freedom of flight !
