Tommy Carroll: Der blinde Skateboarder

Tommy Carroll ist seit seinem zweiten Lebensjahr blind. Was ihn allerdings nicht daran hindert sich fast täglich auf sein Skateboard zu schwingen. Perry Sport aus den Niederlanden hat den jungen Mann für die Kampagne „Be brave, be safe“ begleitet:

„Anywhere I go in skateboarding all what I do is based on sound. I’m constantly using the sound of my wheels to check if there is anything in my way and get my sense of direction. For me protective gear is the difference between being absolutely terrified while skateboarding and being completely confident. I feel that I can push myself to the next level when I am protected. I can try big tricks and not worry about getting hurt. You can be really brave when you are safe.“
