Antonio is from Hamburg and started skateboarding in 2000. He came to snowboarding after several years, where he became an instructor pretty quickly. Unfortunately, 10 years ago he had a tragic snowboard accident and has been paralyzed since then. But that still hasn’t stopped him from practicing different kinds of extreme sports like skiing, wakeboarding or downhill-longboarding.
Listen to this episode to find out how Antonio made it back on the board after his accident and how he is developing sit-downhill-longboarding as a sport.
