Life Rolls on is a wonderful grassroots organization that is an advocate for young people that have suffered or endure a spinal cord injury, mostly of the complete severity.

I take a special interest in this charity, after recently being introduced to it, because I have an SCI...but for the grace of God, I should have ben confied to a wheelchair.

Our very own Matt Smedman of Smed Wakesurfers has a family friend that not only suffered a complete SCI but also is involved with the charity. Matt was one of the generous contributors to the LRO - Night by the Ocean fundraiser.

Huge props to Matt for supporting the charity, as well as, broadening the exposure for wakesurfing.

Here's a pic of my Matt's board with Jesse Billauer, founder of LRO

My aplogies to Matt for misspelling his last name I always confuse his screen name of Smedman with his actual last name of Smedley :-) Forgive me too JL, for confusing you. I'm OLD! :-)

That is sick video of Jesse. Truly an inspirational figure.
