2017 has been a good year for the ISA World Adaptive Surfing Champion so far.
After defending his title in December 2016, Hansen has been getting some well-deserved attention.
In April, Men's Journal published the featured article, "The All-True, Unbelievable, Death-defying Tale of the World's Greatest Paraplegic Surfer" , in which Hansen's accomplishments are laid out far beyond his two World Championship titles, including him in their list of "25 Most Adventurous Men of the Past 25 years".
Hansen is also a part of HUMAN the movie, a project by filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand. He spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries, Bruno being one of those stories.
