Bi-lat Amputee Skateboarder

GO SKATE!!!

My name is Daniel Edmondson and I am a bi-lateral below the knee amputee. I am also a skateboarder, snowboarder, wakesurfer, etc. I’ve been an amputee since February 1st of 2014.

I volunteer with the Adaptive Skate Kollective, helping run clinics for anyone that wants to get better at skateboarding and wcmx. I also compete in adaptive skateboarding, wakesurfing and snowboarding. In the summer of 2016 I competed in the first ever adaptive category at the Minnesota Wake Surfing Championship. I was also at the Rise Adaptive Sports WCXM and Adaptive Skate World Championship in Dallas, Texas. Most recently I attended the Denver Gravity Games, I won 1st place in the adaptive category!

People are always suprised to see me skate as a bi-lateral amputee. Sometimes I skate with my prosthetics off. It really just depends on where I am, and what style of skate I feel like that day. It's all about finding out what works for you.

My favorite is downhill skateboarding, where I reach 35-40mph, and hope to go faster next season. I recently published the Adaptive Skate Coloring Book. I'm hoping it shows people that no matter who you are, you can enjoy skateboarding.

Personally, I'm looking forward to a future where people assume that people with 'disabilities' can do anything. In fact, let's just get rid of that word all together.

Go skate!
