The Incredible Adventures of Bruno Hansen Bruno Hansen was paralyzed from the waist down when a car jacking in his native South Africa turned into a shooting. But he hasn't let that stop him from surfing or pretty much doing anything. His life story reads like an epic hero's journey. Absorb it all here in a brilliant essay in "Men's Journal" by Ariel Leve for which these images were made. He has a zen vibe and leads a very simple life, but he is still one of the most adventurous souls I've met.
