On Saturday, June 8yj, we joined the over 600 volunteers at tower 28 in Santa Monica to be a part of Life Rolls On's They Will Surf Again event. This Santa Monica event was the first surf stop of Life Rolls On's Get On Board 2024 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.

Six12 Media has been there every year, getting as many great surfing shots of these athletes as possible, making sure they and their families get some awesome action photos to remember this day.

We got way too many great photos to post here. You can find several 100 more surf photos from this day, all full size and high-resolution, in this gallery:

“It's great that Red Bull is educating people on the history of skateboarding in the heart of Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Dogtown. It's all about the history of the location,” said skate pioneer and legend Christian Hosoi, “And I think that this type of event brings the minds of people who want to know what it was like back in the day. I think it's going to bring people to want to know more about the history and watch Dogtown and Z Boys or my documentary, Rising Sun. I mean, we lived it. We did it. We were there. It was something that can change your life and change your life forever. It'll inspire you to want to skateboard or to want to be just good at whatever you do.”

About Red Bull Origin

Skateboarding’s origin story could not be described without mention of the sunny streets and vibrant culture of Venice Beach, California. In the 1970s, the Santa Monica and Venice Beach area (also known as Dogtown) became a breeding ground for the Z-Boys and similar groups, birthing the punk and skate subcultures that reverberate through skateboarding today. Now, in the present day, Venice remains a beacon of counterculture, drawing the next generation of skaters to its storied shores. For more information, visit
