Derek Rabelo- international blind surfer comes to SA!

Live your dream. Make your goals.

The Royal Society for the Blind is proud to present Derek Rabelo- international blind surfer as part of two exciting and unique SA first events. Born with congenital glaucoma and completely blind, this didn’t stop Derek or his family from believing that he could do anything he wanted, even if that meant becoming a surfer. 

At age 17 and with surfing in his blood, Derek decided to pursue his passion. Through intense training, perseverance and determination, Derek today at 25 years of age, is one of the best professional surfers in the world. Surfing alongside others such as Kelly Slater and Mick Fanning, Derek has conquered some of the biggest waves in the world including the famous Pipeline in Hawaii.

Derek has produced two powerful documentaries- Beyond Sight and Walking on Water.
