CHRISTIAAN "OTTER" BAILEY HAS MONSTER CAJONES

Christian "Otter" Bailey is rare: He's one of only a few disabled pro surfers in the world, with Christiaan staking the claim of being the only paraplegic pro surfer. With the help of a support group called Life Rolls On, Bailey, who became disabled when he fractured his spine shooting a skateboarding video in 2006, just kept going. Within weeks of being injured Christiaan was already sketching surfboard designs. Now at 31 he's a surfing pro again, and competing as a skater as well. He got involved in "extreme sitting" sports, with adapted surfing and chair-skating, and has been in several tournaments including the U.S. Open of Surfing. He also founded the non-profit, the Ocean Healing Group, to help young people with disabilities learn to surf and teaches at the Shaka Beach Retreat in Costa Rica (owned by some of his friends), where he also teaches surfing to kids with disabilities.
