Derek Rabelo’s father prayed that his son would be a professional surfer. But Derek was born blind in 1992, and his father’s dream seemed impossible. Seventeen years later, however, Derek decided that not only did he want to surf — he wanted to surf the legendary waves on the North Shore of Oahu. Derek’s courage both in and out of the water shows that the best journeys in life are guided by faith, and not by sight. Blind surfer Derek Rabelo encourages us to try new things.
