Meet Christiaan, Patrick and Jake, three larger-than-life personalities who triumph over their physical disabilities in life with a wheelchair view. Watch as they smash through the mental and physical barriers that come as the result of being a quadriplegic and paraplegic. These men symbolize hope to their peers as they dare to go where wheelchairs are not welcome - the ocean, the jungle and the skate park.

From the US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Venice Beach and Malibu to the coast of Central America you will be astonished by the bravery of these injured athletes. Enjoy a heartwarming and uplifting account of these extraordinary men, their families and the volunteers of Oceans Healing Group who fight to conquer the stereotypes of spinal cord injuries. You will be amazed at the courage and strength of Christiaan, Patrick, Jake and friends in this emotional and inspiring documentary. Handicapped? We don't think so - the only obstacle is in the mind!
