INSPIRED: A Blind Surferâ€™s Faith Takes Him To Pipeline, Beyond Sight (3 minutes)
Derek Rabelo was born blind, unable to see even the faintest glimmer of light, in the small beautiful city of Guarapari, Brazil. Deciding he wasn’t going to confine his life to being blind, he pursued surfing, and now he finds himself doing the unthinkable — surfing the North Shore’s gnarliest waves. His journey to Pipeline has been documented in Beyond Sight, an upcoming story told by Walking on Water Films, featuring the likes of Bethany Hamilton, Kelly Slater, Laird Hamilton, Makua and Koa Rothman, Rob Machado, Tom Curren, Joel Parkinson, Kala Alexander, Mike Stewart, Lakey Peterson and Damien Hobgood.
