Pete is also an accomplished surfer, motivational speaker, and produces his own YouTube Channel with more than 12 thousand subscribers. Even with all this, some might say that the most inspiring aspect of Pete Gustin’s accomplishments is that he did it all while being legally blind.

In this feature documentary, you’ll get an inside perspective into Pete’s life showcasing a slow but steady loss of vision and an equally steady determination to never give up and never give in.
