Blind since the age of two, 15-year-old skater Tommy Carroll has been on a board since the age of 10. Losing sight in both eyes to bilateral retinoblastoma, Tommy relies on a highly developed sense of hearing to pick up the sound of his wheels on the ground to tell what might be ahead. It’s a quite remarkable story, in life, anything is possible.
