“If I can do all this and I am blind, what can you achieve?”
Beyond These Eyesis the biography of one of the most inspiring, courageous and incredible young men to be living on our planet at this time in history.
Professional surfer Derek Rabelois fearless in the ocean. The unique characteristic of this young man, though, is that he is blind, having been born with congenital glaucoma.
He is famous for his big wave courage, riding life-threatening monsters at Pipeline, Jaws and Mavericks in Northern California, and most recently surfing 50 foot waves in Nazaré, Portugal. This is an unbelievable attempt for anyone, but a miracle if you are blind.
Beyond These Eyestakes you on an extraordinary journey of Derek’s life. From the time of his birth, the anguish and then devotion and love of his family, to his time now as a married man and his devotion to his wife, Madeline.
His strong faith and love for God has enabled him to achieve the miraculous. Derek tours the world to speak to people of all ages to encourage and inspire them to take the limitations off their thinking.
