This is really some rad shit. You think dudes like P-Rod and Nate Adams are sick, imagine if they were missing an arm or a leg and still shredding that hard. Well that’s the deal with the nationally-recognized nonprofit Adaptive Action Sports, which just took their philosophy of “creating pathways for adaptive athletes” to a whole ‘nother level at this past X-Games.
