ADMX: Air Division Moto

A new sport is here for extreme wheelers that take to the sky and its called ADMX. Air Division Moto is an acronym that I came up with for these types of sports as we push the boundaries into the unknown, accomplishing feats that aren’t mainstream or in most cases haven’t even done before.

Here you can check out Mogo Wheelchairs ADMX rider Damon going Over The Edge 40 stories for Special Olympics Hawaii as he sponsors their Athlete program. Hosted by The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort this event is held annually for SOH.

Stay tunes as fun times in skydiving, Offroad 4×4 Wheelchairing, windtunnel body flying to name a few are explored. Mahalo to all who support dreams like these. Much aloha

Mahalo nui!

Mahalo nui!

 

WCMX First Try

Last night I rolled up the hill in  my neighborhood to the skate park. It was after hours and late and yes, pitch black. But I wanted badly to try rolling around nevertheless. And as my buddy Brett Martin taught me, “Make it happen!” Which is exactly what we did.

Me and buddy Mark charged around in the dark as he ran behind me shining the light from his cell phone and goproing. Mark spotted me up hills and on table tops.

Pure fun was had!! Much aloha – Damon

Over The Edge 2014

Special Olympics Hawaii held their annual event Over The Edge, a fundraiser for their athlete program. Each entrant must raise a minimum $1000 that will fund a single athletes sports program for one year.

This year I returned to sponsor this great cause and rappelled 40 stories down The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Waikiki. Last I set the record at 300 ft and by becoming the first and only chair user to do such a feat in Hawaii. This year I was able to break that record by adding an additional 100 ft.

And if that wasnt enough, rather than landing on an open area like everyone else we came in sideways through a balcony to avoid hoofing it up a few flights of narrow scaffolding stairs. Extreme all the way!

I’d like to thank all who supported me in this beautiful event. It was a great success! Aloha – Damon

Mahalo nui!

Plane To Ground Transfer

Yesterday I woke up to a beautiful sunny day and thought what a great day for a jump at Skydive Hawaii. It was epic conditions, blue skies and perfect winds.

I had such a fun jump. We exited forward, somersaulting into freefall.  While burning a hole in the sky at 120 mph I practiced body positioning and left and right turns. After deploying chute I practiced some canopy work too. Thank you so much Brett Martin! Another awesome day at Skydive Hawaii.

Amazing Day At Manawale’a Riding Center

It was an amazing day at Manawale’a Riding Center located in Waimanalo on Oahu’s eastern shore. Manawale’a creates a safe nurturing environment where people with special needs can experience the unconditional love and bonding horses provide.

I got to work with Humvee, a beautiful and gentle mare. An adaptive saddle with a built in backrest and a hoyer lift made the transfer from wheelchair to horseback effortless.

Riding Humvee was incredible and with the adaptive saddle, balance was a breeze. As her shoulders rose in stride so did my thighs giving a sensation of walking. It was wonderful how she felt like an extension of my body. Afterward riding I got to spend time bonding and grooming Humvee.

The riding center was teeming with animal life from horses to dogs to cats and chickens. Such a beautiful experience!  Aloha

Wonderful day Skydiving

Another wonderful day at Skydive Hawaii with tandem jump instructor Richard Dopplemayer aka “Papa Dop”. It was a beautiful sunny day with passing cloud cover.

On our load, they found a nice big puka or hole in the clouds for us to jump through. The view was amazing and freefall flight was epic.

I was able to strap my GoPro on my chest so that I could share our view of the jump. You can hear on the video when we are low enough to see my Mogo wheelchair for landing, and theres a cool picture below of us  targeting my chair on final approach.

The week before this, I was surfing and happened to meet the band Third Eye Blind. They were very nice and sincere guys. I wanted to put a beautiful relaxing song on my jump footage and used their song “The Background”, which we so happened to have a memorable conversation about at the beach.

Love life! Aloha
