THE OCEAN GIVES ME FREEDOM

Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Riley Phelps

I need full assistance at everything I do which makes it safer and more fun for me

I was born with Cerebral Palsy due to my twin passing away in the womb at 5 months from twin to twin transfusion. My dad has been taking me surfing since I was 5 along with my little brother. I love the ocean. I also love WCMX chair skating, adapted skiing, riding a trike, swimming, and being with groups of friends.  

The ocean gives me freedom and I scream when I go fast on a wave. I need full assistance at everything I do, which makes it safer and more fun for me. I'm going back to Costa Rica in July to surf with an Ocean Healing Group for a week and we will do other various activities for kids like me. Every summer, I look forward to surfing with my dad and brother at different events and every winter I look forward to more WCMX and adapted skiing!
