Paralyzed Skateboarder Dan Pelletier: ‘I Keep Livin’ It’

27-year-old Dan Pelletier may have suffered spine damage when he was born, which led to paralysis in his legs. But that hasn’t stopped him from adapting and achieving goals on his skateboard every year. As a teenager, the North Carolinian had mastered the art of skating with crutches—and even got sponsored—but health complications stripped him of his ability to stand and skate. Find out what drives Pelletier to keep pushing himself in ‘I Keep Livin’ It,’ a short film by Mike Steinkamp.
