“It was absolutely amazing; it was the best natural high I’ve ever had in my life,” she said.

The 29-year-old former athlete and surfer was paralyzed last year after falling off the roof of her home.

She’s taking part in a program that brings activities and sports back into the lives of people with spinal cord injuries. Participants surf, kayak, cycle and dance.
