They Will Surf Again, a no-cost program underwritten by Life Rolls On and generous underwriters, is the flagship program of Life Rolls On. TWSA utilizes a surfing experience to push the boundary of possibility for those with SCI. It’s not all about the surfing, it’s about showing that anything is possible!
Individuals with spinal cord injuries from around the country gather together for a day of surfing, inspiration and camaraderie. Some have not surfed since their injury, some have never surfed, some surf all the time despite their varying mobility. TWSA pairs roughly 7 volunteers with each surfer, for a day of excitement, joy, and best of all, surf!
Safety precautions and experienced watermen (and women), along with lifeguards are always present. No prior surfing experience is necessary.
