We are epic surf and skate events for wheelchair athletes

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, Life Rolls On began as a splash into the unknown on September 11, 2001; achieved 501c3 nonprofit status in 2002, and now touches the lives of hundreds of thousands.


LRO is a 501c3

After a paralyzing surfing accident, Jesse pioneered a way back into sports – for himself and thousands of others

Jesse was one of the top 100 junior surfers in the world, a month away from turning professional, when a wave threw him headfirst into a sandbar. The impact broke his sixth vertebrae, instantly rendering him a quadriplegic. But Jesse decided his story would not end that day in the ocean. With the help of the surf community, he pioneered adaptive equipment, rallied loyal volunteers, and now leads thousands of wheelchair athletes into the freedom of surfing and skating. And in 2015, Jesse won the gold medal in the ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championship ... proof that everything in life is possible. To learn more about Jesse, please visit JesseBillauer.com
