Born in Auckland, New Zealand in 1954, Paul Speight has always had a big passion in his life, sports. Including sailing, tennis, and in the All Black country of New Zealand, rugby!
A paraplegic due to a car accident when he was 21 years old, he decided to learn sit-ski and later became one of the first sit-ski monitors in 1980. He even became the captain of the New Zealand Disabled Ski Team during the Innsbruck Paralympic Games in 1988.
At the end of 1988, he started Spokes'n Motion in Denver, Colorado (USA). With collaboration of Enabling Technologies, he participated in the conception of the Bi-Unique and Outriggers Superlite which is now a revolution in the sit ski domain.
