SUP the mag recently posted an inspiring story about Florida college student Byron “Bo” Jaffe, who suffers from arthrogryposis, a congenital disease that permanently shortens muscles and tendons and that forces him to wear a brace that should realign his bones. When Jaffe was a baby, doctors told his parents that he’d never walk, but he’s done that and more and now surfs, skim boards, dives, and has recently become infatuated with standup paddling, according to the magazine. “I go every day and work out as hard as possible, even with this contraption,” he told SUP the mag.
