Six Pictures Of Danny Renaud Skating Again, And One Other, Cribbed From Various Instagram Entries

“The recovery process was hell. I was confined to wheel chairs and walkers. I had a halo around my left leg for about 6 months and one on my right for two years. I had to sleep on my back, coffin style, the whole time. Talk about taking tossing and turning at night for granted. I had to learn how to walk all over again. I couldn’t start my recovery until the halo’s were off. The day I got my second halo off, I walked around a lake that was about four miles. It wasn’t until last August (2011) that I got my last surgery where I had my Achilles heel lengthened and scar tissue removed for more range of motion in my right ankle.”

“I’ve been skating a lot, trying to get this footage for Mike Atwood’s upcoming video, Incognito, which should be good. All the Florida homies and then some. So far I’ve got a small part, but you know how it goes. It’s a nightmare trying to film, but I’m working on it. I’m also taking some business classes in New York because eventually I would like to start up my own small company.”

Thanks to those users from whom these photos were yanked. For rewatching purposes.

    Was Danny Renaud the one with the line going against oncoming traffic and doing a powerslide tail slap into a car’s tire?

    What part is that? I think I remember it being posted on here at some point.

    I’m inspired by his rehabilitative feat, but also feel a selfish anger for what coulda been had he not nearly killed himself at that hotel. He coulda logged so much more footage amazing footage. I’m not saying my feeling’s valid, just sharing an impulse. I suppose Jake Johnson’s could be thought of as his successor.

    His part in Mosaic is, for me, the ultimate match in skating/style/music all matching up perfectly. Sucks he went off the deep end but glad he’s back on the board.
