They Will Skate Again
Life Rolls On made history – again! – in 2010, creating the first skate clinic for people living with paralysis. Hosted annually at the world famous Venice Beach Skate Park in Venice, California, this event is nothing short of epic.
They Will Skate Again attracts everyone from little shredders to serious pros. Participation is always FREE. Life Rolls On provides expert instruction, hundreds of volunteers, awesome food, DJ music and an awards ceremony.

Founder Jesse Billauer
After Jesse pioneered his own way back to surfing, he realized he needed to give other people with paralysis the same freedom, the same pure happiness of catching a wave. With a few fearless friends, Life Rolls On began as a splash into the unknown on ... of all mornings ... September 11, 2001. The "band of brothers" contemplated calling the whole thing off on that fateful day, but decided to charge the waves as a salute to freedom.
Today, Jesse brings that same fearless outlook to everything he does, and every life he touches. He continues to lead his visionary organization as Executive Director & CEO, and wants YOU to join the journey – as an adaptive athlete, volunteer, donor or corporate sponsor.

Life Rolls On is a 501c3 nonprofit. All athletes participate FREE of charge. If you can help in any way, please email Jesse at Jesse@LifeRollsOn.org. Every dollar counts.
