Life Rolls On – Wildwood NJ

I had the recent pleasure of covering a day of fun and sun in Wildwood NJ at the Life Rolls On “Get On Board Tour.” Life Rolls On is a non-profit founded by Jesse Billauer. After he sustained a spinal cord injury while surfing, Jesse made it his mission to reach out and help others. LRO’s mission is to raise awareness, educate, and provide support through funding of spinal cord injury research.

There was an incredible turnout of volunteers and surfers, with smiles all around. Though I was familiar with LRO, I hadn’t yet been to an event. I fell into a quiet thinking mode during the day as I recorded the pure joy of wave riding. I aimed to capture emotion in journalistic style with a focus on water photography. We couldn’t have had a better weather day and the waves were perfect sized. Teams of volunteers were paired with riders and it was a collaboration effort to get someone surfing. Boards available ranged from longboards to WaveJets. Riders were all ages, from children to adults.  To see a list of events and how you can participate please check out the Life Rolls On homepage.

About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.
