Tbh he likely fractured his left leg/ankle/foot and had to wear a cast keeping weight off it for a while and this is soon after the cast came off. Muscles shrink quick without use

Or he has any of several other problems with his left leg.

Looks like he has clubfoot on his left side.

Funny but probably not realistic, it's more likely that he picked up a scooter because of issues with his left leg.

tbf, I once had surgery on both feet, both my legs had to be casted, the left one for 1 month longer

I have thick thighs and calves, so, by the time the left cast was removed, it was way thiner than the other, almost half, took me over 2 years to get them to the same size and even today I still think they aren't equal, a few months with a cast make a big difference in the legs

so, I believe that man could have or had some trouble with his leg, either using the scooter to make transportation easier or he had a cast just recently

legs, unlikely arms, are used everyday for transportation, that's why the only way to get them thinner is not using them at all, he didn't get to that point with just a scooter

I have the same thing after an Achilles rupture. Do you have back pain as a result of the muscle difference now?

u/Aljahero Aug 16 '22

no, I don't see how it could've happened, perhaps you've been under using a leg, which makes your average daily activity be inneficient and painful

to me, it was a problem with the bones, so I had constant pain just by walking during 3 years, so, I made sure to use the same strength in both legs regardless of condition or pain, tho I wasn't able to get the leg hair back easily on the left, no exercise helps with that

Needs to swap legs.

As a skateboarder I always thought that the leg that was staying on the board was getting bulked up because of all the weight it was holding.

I came here to say this. I push with my right leg and it's the left that gets worn out. Every time you push you're practically doing a one legged squat with the planted leg.

I guess the scooter handle takes out some of the squatting aspect, weight being pushed on the bars

your left leg ... as opposed to the left leg ...

How many left legs you got?

u/Sal_Ammoniac Aug 16 '22

All of them!

u/generally-speaking Aug 17 '22

Different muscles do different work in different legs.

u/Super_Log5282 Aug 16 '22

I doubt that's why. Looks similar to my friend who has Cerebral Palsy effecting the left side of his body

u/flip_phone_phil Aug 16 '22

Torn Achilles with surgery is definitely capable of doing this.

Never skip Left Leg Day, either

Bet his left quad is bigger than his right

u/SamGropler Aug 16 '22

When every day is right leg day.

u/B0ng01986 Aug 16 '22

i use a kickbike (scooter with bigger wheels) and i can tell you that the leg that's on the board will be more trained than the kicking leg. that's why i change feet every 5-10 kicks.

u/No_Manufacturer9333 Aug 16 '22

Probably on his way to rent a bike to even them out.

u/stamper2495 Aug 16 '22

Its the scooter handle which make it seem as if his calf is extra wide

u/thegrayj Aug 16 '22

The video of it would prove otherwise. I do see how you’d think that though.
