seriously? you're going to criticize this kid for "cheating"/not being paralyzed enough/ spelling errors? He's been through 25 surgeries, I'm pretty damn sure that what he's doing is AWESOME.
don't be dicks.

Someone please tell the young man that the lead message should say he is paralyzed from the "waist" down, rather than from the "waste" down which makes no sense. Maybe he should concentrate on his school work as much as skateboarding.

He's not the only one doing this. Check out the videoclip featuring Bill Shannon. I'm not sure if I would call it cheating, but it's definitely very cool!(Be sure to read the info)

while its cool he is active while paralyzed, all he does amounts to using his arms to keep balance, which is the difficult part of skateboarding. So yes, he is cheating.
