Homepage > Who Is LRO > Who Benefits From Our Work? > Christiaan Bailey My LRO Story - Christiaan Bailey Christiaan Bailey was injured in 2006 at his local favorite local skate park, but that has not stopped him from pursuing his athletic dreams. After working hard to recover, he immediately got back to doing what he loves, surfing every morning and skating every afternoon, albeit chairskating now. Christiaan learned of LRO and its programs through his surfer buddies and well, as they say...the rest was history! As an ambassador for LRO, Christiaan continues to use his courage and enthusiasm to inspire others with physical disabilities. "When people first sustain an SCI, they feel as if their dreams are gone. LRO's programs, like They Will Surf Again, show people that they can accomplish more than they think," explains Bailey. "LRO instills in people the confidence, drive and determination to pursue their dreams despite the challenges life throws at them." Christiaan has definitely pursued his dreams, surfing in exhibitions at the O'Neill Coldwater Classic, NSSA National Championships, WSA National Championships, The REEF Panama Classic and the US Open of Surfing.

Bailey spoke about Life Rolls On and its They Will Surf Again program, but then shocked viewers by stating, despite his paralysis, he was working on his own plans to surf Mavericks in the future.

Ambassador Spotlight: Christiaan Bailey
Christiaan Bailey's career in action sports was on the rise, as he traveled the world to showcase his talents as a skater and surfer. So, it is with unfortunate irony that the skate park Bailey knew best, hurt him the worst. In July 2006, while filming a video at Derby Skate Park in his hometown of Santa Cruz, CA, Christiaan, then 25, fractured his L3 and L4 vertebrae paralyzing him from the waist down. With the support of family and friends, Bailey was determined to not allow spinal cord injury (SCI) deter him from his dreams. Upon release from the hospital, Christiaan and his friends began the monumental task of adapting the sports he loved to his new disability. Working in conjunction with shaper Eric Roush and board manufacturer Surftech, Bailey made groundbreaking improvements to SCI surfboard design. Since his injury, Christiaan continues to surf and skate around the world, including stops throughout the Americas and Europe. As an Ambassador for Life Rolls On, he has surfed in exhibitions at the O'Neill Coldwater Classic, NSSA National Championships, WSA National Championships, The Reef Panama Classic and the US Open of Surfing. Most recently, he co-founded Shaka Surf Camp, the first surf camp in Central America that is fully ADA compliant and specifically designed to cater to both able-bodied and disabled surfers. Learning first-hand how disability affects an entire family, one of the camp's goals is to sponsor trips for wheelchair-bound children and their families. Family members will come as guests of the camp to enjoy a much-needed vacation, while the child will learn to surf under quality instruction and care to meet his or her special needs. "Being an Ambassador for LRO means representing something greater than oneself," Bailey explained. "By serving as a mentor to those who have recently sustained spinal cord injuries, you have the chance to reinstill in them confidence, drive and determination...empowering them to pursue their dreams, despite the challenges life has thrown their way." Christiaan continues to set lofty goals for himself, which includes surfing in an exhibition at Mavericks, a torrential big wave surfing competition at which he served as guest announcer last year, as well as promoting adaptive surfing to a worldwide audience. "It's critical to follow your dreams and cultivate your passions," said Bailey, now 27. "Otherwise, you're not really living, just existing." When Christiaan is not on Surfline charting the next incoming swell, one can find him traveling, surfing, paddle boarding, scuba diving, chairskating, fishing, quad-riding and always living life to its fullest - never looking back at a life that once was, but always looking forward to the future that lies ahead.

On October 26, LRO Ambassador Christiaan Bailey charged the waves during a Life Rolls On Expression Session at the O'Neill Coldwater Classic at Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz, California.
Bailey not only organized this opportunity, but also arranged for LRO to be the official beneficiary of the contest for the third year in a row. "I would like to extend a huge thank you to Coors & Fosters for their support, as well as Santa Cruz Surf Shop, Aloha Island and last but certainly not least, ASP for welcoming Life Rolls On as the competition's official charity," he said. In addition to surfing in the event and running Life Rolls On's on-site fundraising booth, Christiaan, 27, used the Coldwater Classic as an opportunity to mentor a five-year-old little boy who lost the use of his legs after suffering a stroke at just 18 months old. Zachary Puddy Siggens and his mom, Linda, were introduced to Christiaan through Life Rolls On and, after four months of exchanging emails and phone calls, they flew down from their home in Seattle, Washington to meet with Bailey. "I had an absolutely fantastic time hanging with Zach," Christiaan added. Just weeks following the Coldwater Classic, Christiaan participated in an impromptu Expression Session on November 8 during Volcom's Great White Surf Series, which also took place at Steamer Lane. This winter, Bailey hopes to fulfill a dream of being the first disabled person to ride Maverick's, the world-renowned big wave break located one-half mile off the coast of Half Moon Bay, California. He's been training to achieve this goal for the last six months. "I've already [ridden] twenty-footers down in Costa Rica," he said. Photo Credits: Mark Prefontaine and Christiaan Bailey
