Tommy Carroll has skated since age 10. He began to develop cancer of the retina from age 2 and was completely blind. Skateboarding is all about pushing the limits and have fun, Tommy completely push the limit of both skateboarding and being blind . What he likes most is waking up early and feeling the sun on his body while skating the bowl.
Designers Baptiste and Gianni Vuerich recycle old skateboards into high quality and unique sunglasses. Everything is handmade, amazing!
“First, we take off the grip, we cut the board to make the front part and the arms. We varnish, and finally, we assemble the different parts and insert lenses into the frame. Finally the sunglasses are ready to be worn.” - Vuerich B
Skateboarding and slow-motion are always good combination ,even if you don’t skate it’s always a beauty to watch .
When we were kids we never dreamt of being a firemen, a pilot or superhero. We always wanted to be skateboarders, jumping up curbs, down the stairs and filp our boards as many times as we could. This has not changed until today.
