Actions REALized: Dan Mancina

Rarely do we get the pleasure of watching skate clips that are this inspirational. Dan Mancina is excelling in what most would think would be impossible: he skates without being able to see. Real Skateboards has linked up with Dan and produced a skateboard with braille graphics and also specifically tailored for the visually impaired. Read below:

“Dan Mancina is no different than any skateboarder – he loves every second of it and doesn’t let anything get in his way. While losing his eyesight at the age of 23 due to a degenerative eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa cast a spotlight on him in the skateboard community, he was already a strong part of it. After the first time he skated with the Real Team he was instantly a part of the crew. With Dan’s help we worked on a special Actions REALized board designed specifically for the visually impaired.”
