SANTA ANA, CA, February 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Billauer, 33, spent the first 17 years of his life training and successfully building his career as a professional surfer. In 1996, following a surfing accident, Jesse suffered a complete spinal cord injury, cutting short that planned career. During his recovery, not willing to let his accident get the best of him, Billauer founded Life Rolls On, an organization committed to enabling spinal cord injury adaptive athletes to continue to surf and skate throughout their lives. Billauer has continued to push the boundaries of what is possible and has continued to live his dream as a professional surfer.
Billauer looks forward to this new beginning with WaveJet, commenting, "WaveJet has changed my life. It has changed my friends' lives as well. It has allowed me to have more independence in the water allowing my friends to not feel like I am solely dependent on their assistance. WaveJet has allowed me to challenge myself and my wave knowledge skills and has brought a whole new way for me too look at my next surf session. I feel so lucky and blessed to have this technology at my fingertips now. I have lots of wave catching up to do. I'm so stoked."
WaveJet has been providing WaveJet systems for Life Rolls On 'They Will Surf Again' events since 2011 and designed Billauer's first WaveJet in 2012. "Since the inception of WaveJet, we've realized that there are so many uses for this technology and so many ways that it can optimize time in water," commented WaveJet founder and CEO, Mike Railey. "I am truly humbled and honored to know that this technology that we developed could take Jesse's and other athletes' surfing to the next level. We are stoked to have him on our team."
