Skateboarding is unique in the fact that it remains open to anyone and everyone – Unity Skateboarding, based in Oakland, CA, is a project that supports and celebrates all queer and transgender people in skateboarding. They provide a platform for visibility and create inclusive and welcoming spaces for them to come together in the Bay Area and beyond. A portion of the proceeds from this board will go directly to the Transgender Law Center, a national trans-led organization, to support their continued efforts advocating self-determination for all people so they can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression.
Dan Mancina and the Real team spent the day at El Sereno Skatepark in LA to roll with the locals. A few brave skaters threw on blindfolds to get a glimpse into what skateboarding is like for Dan.
Dan Mancina is no different than any skateboarder – he loves every second of it and doesn’t let anything get in his way. While losing his eyesight at the age of 23 due to a degenerative eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa cast a spotlight on him in the skateboard community, he was already a strong part of it. After the first time he skated with the Real Team he was instantly a part of the crew. With Dan’s help we worked on a special Actions REALized board designed specifically for the visually impaired.
