New John Cardiel footage!

New footage of John Cardiel skating a pool in the US emerged via Spitfire’s instagram overnight that will no doubt warm the hearts of every skateboarder lucky enough to ever step on a board.

It’s been 11 years since Cards was accidentally run over in Australia whilst filming for the Tent City film. After being told by doctors he would never walk again due to a spinal cord injury sustained, John’s positivity through tough times finally allowed movement in his legs after a long spell in a wheelchair. He’s used cycling as a way to gain the use of his legs again, but this new footage shows he is back, and boy is the best feeling ever to see him so happy!

The sound of those tiles and coping being schralped and that smile says it all. All Hail Cardiel!
