Operation Soul Surf - Rye's Story
Rye's Story is about a young Army veteran named Rye Shawcroft who suffered from degenerative lower limb injuries, leading to multiple surgeries, painkillers, and resigning to a wheelchair-bound life. Struggling with mental health issues, Rye eventually underwent a successful operation, which allowed him short stints of walking with a stick. Embracing challenges, Rye became the first person to compete in a wheelchair in Tough Mudder. In March 2022, he joined the OSS3 surfing program, overcoming his disability and anxiety to enjoy the sport. A Pride of Australia nominee, Rye is an inspiring figure who participates in the RSL Active program.
Operation Soul Surf. Blaire's Story
Blaire's story began with his participation in the OSS1 program in 2021, where he sought help for PTS and depression stemming from years of frontline policing and multiple traumatic incidents. The ocean and surfing had a profound impact on Blaire and his family, leading him to purchase a surfboard and surf 11 times in 6 weeks despite living 210 km away from the closest beach. This dedication to surfing greatly improved his mental and physical health, with Blaire regularly making a 400+ km round trip to surf. His inspiring story is captured in a video by FRED Farquhar and Scott McAulay, who are thanked for their support and production of the clip. Blaire is also commended for his candor and trust in the program.
