• A true champion lives by faith, not by sight

Derek Rabelo was born blind. Three years ago he surfed Pipeline.

In the works, a movie titled Beyond Sight that tells his inspirational story, "A true champion lives by faith, not by sight."

This week, he met up with Joel Parkinson and surfed with Taj Burrow out at Lower Trestles. Check out the photos, and watch the movie trailer. His film will be released in early 2013.
