Felipe Nunes is the best example of what we call “pushing the boundaries”. When it comes to love for skateboarding, he showed the world his superpower.
Nunes lost both his legs at the age of 6, one was amputated just below the knee, the other just above the knee. But his obsession with skateboarding did not let anything hinder him from becoming a professional skateboarder. Lately, he has joined Tony Hawk’s team, Birdhouse, as an official team member.
He is not the first of his kind rather Og De Souza was the first hand-powered skater.
