The skateboard falls left him with osteoarthritis of his right hip. Follow Hunter as he video blogs his way beginning with pre-op jitters and back to competitive form.
Every summer Ocean Beach Surf and Skate, Ocean Experience Surf School and Indo Board partner with the San Diego Chapter of the Braille Institute to give visually impaired youth the chance to learn to surf. While we have been involved in introducing many differnt types people to the experience of riding waves, nothing quite compares to this. We are stoked that the Indo Board plays a crucial role in helping these visually impaired kids understand the basics of balance and prepares them for an experience that they will never forget. The surf instructors used the full range of Indo Board products before the surfers entered the water so that they simulate the instability that they would expereince once they were in the water and on their surfboards. The Indo Board Original (deck with roller underneath) and the Gigante Cushion (large cushion that is placed under a surfboard) played a critical role in helping the instructors assess important variables such as balance, posture and stability before the surfers entered the surf. This translated into great successes once the kids entered the water. Seeing the faces of kids, most of whom had never been in the ocean – much less on a surfboard, made this an incredibly gratifying experience for all involved.
