Prepare to be amazed, as Red Bull meets up with a skater who lost his vision, but never his passion. Imagine that one day, at a young age, you're told that something was wrong with your vision. Like a race against time, each day your vision deteriorates a little bit more until one day you wake up and, like that, your sight is gone. How does someone skate when they're blind? Simply put, at first, Mancina didn't. Grappling with the anxiety, fear and depression that accompanied his loss of vision, Mancina set aside his board, thinking that skating was part of his former life.

The Brotherhood of Eternal Love being it’s most famous Californian export. If you’re unfamiliar with the BOEL then you need to watch Orange Sunshine. Long story short, the near-mythical gang was an integral part of the Summer of Love and aimed to “turn on the world” through exposing it to LSD.
