On Saturday, June 2, over 500 volunteers showed up at tower 28 in Santa Monica to be a part of They Will Surf Again. This Santa Monica event was the first surf stop of Life Rolls On's Get On Board 2018 Tour. They Will Surf Again is an award-winning series of bi-coastal events that empower paraplegics and quadriplegics to experience the freedom of mobility by riding a wave with the assistance of adaptive equipment and the support of hard working volunteers.
More than a day of recreational activity, They Will Surf Again also serves as an exceptional opportunity for individuals with SCI and their families to network and establish new support networks outside traditional group support settings. Founded by world champion quadriplegic surfer Jesse Billauer, Life Rolls On is dedicated to improving the quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injury. Believing that adaptive surfing and skating could inspire infinite possibilities beyond paralysis.
Every year our photographer, Six12 Media, volunteers his services to make sure all the adaptive surfers and families get some awesome photos to remember this day.
There's a huge gallery of photos from this event. Almost 1,000 photos. Check them out:
