Hey there, My name is Dan Monzo. First off, I would like to thank you for visiting my page. I lost my leg at the age of fifteen in 2006, six months after i got my first prosthetic, two weeks after i entered a railjam my mountain set up. With no snow except a two foot wide path to the 20 foot box and no experience snowboarding with a prosthetic leg prior. I strapped up and aimed my self at the rail and went for it. I made it off the jump on the the box then slide the rail about halfway before falling face first into the mud. when i stood up after falling off the rail, my whole face was covered in mud but i had the biggest smile on my face any one has ever seen. knowing that id be able to snowboard again I made the decision that i wanted to become a professional adaptive snowboarder.
Ever since that day i have been training and competing to become a pro. I started winning regional compititons. then i became a national adaptive half pipe champion. my biggest accomplishment thus far is receiving bronze at the 2011 winter x games adaptive boardercross. My goals for the future is to make the national paralympic team, get gold in the 2014 paralympics and compete against able bodied riders in the 2018 Olympics in south Korea.




The only way i can make my dreams a reality is with your help. How can you help you may ask? by donating to this site on my behalf. Please help me reach my life long dreams.
