Meet Ryusei Ouchi, The Blind Skateboarder Who Is Inspiring 1000s With His Talent.

Skateboarding is a tricky sport to master, but there’s no challenge too great for Ryusei Ouchi of Tokorozawa, Japan – not even when it comes to nailing tricks he can’t see!

Ryusei began losing his vision at age 7. Now, the 20-year-old is almost completely blind, but that hasn’t stopped him from doing what he loves. He’s been skateboarding since he was 15 and uses a cane to fearlessly ride ramps, grind on rails, and even jump down sets of stairs! Is it any wonder he has thousands of fans on Instagram?

Prepare to be amazed as you see him in action in the video below, and share this incredible feat with your friends.
