<p>A teen with cerebral palsy learned to surf after friends strapped his wheelchair to a paddleboard.</p><p>Daredevil Enzo Marcantoni, 18, from Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, was on holiday in New Hampshire when he tried it out.</p><p>Heartwarming videos show him beaming and shouting in delight.</p><p>Dad Walter Marcantoni, 56, said: "The guys at the surf shop had the idea to put Enzo's sports buggy on the paddleboard.</p><p>"After that - the rest was history!</p><p>"Enzo needs help with basic things, but just like any other 18-year-old, he wants to do things in life.</p><p>"He doesn't want anything to pass him by - he's up for anything. He loves skiing, boxing and any watersports.</p><p>"As soon as he got on the board, he just kept saying again, again, again!</p><p>"The videos don't even do his energy justice. As parents, we can see how much joy he gets out of it.</p><p>"We almost had tears in our eyes watching him!"</p><p>Walter said since Enzo's first ride on the board, he has been desperate to get on the water at every opportunity.</p><p>But Walter feels the most important thing is showing people that Enzo's disabilities won't ever hold him back.</p><p>He explained: "When most people look at our son, they see what’s missing, and what he can't do.</p><p>"But the staff at the surf shop saw past it all, and saw he just wants to have fun like everyone else.</p><p>"It takes really special people to see past those limitations and that's the most important message.</p><p>"We want to raise awareness and show that surfing can be inclusive for everyone.</p><p>"As long as Enzo wants to keep surfing, and it keeps putting a smile on his face, we'll make it happen."</p>
