Derek Rabelo – Blind Professional Surfer

Parkes Rotary Club have introduced a series of YOU TUBE interviews that anyone can watch if we are short of a speaker. The first one is below:

As a young, blind Brazilian, Derek Rebello had a “crazy” dream to surf the legendary ‘Pipeline’ break in Hawaii. Achieving that goal thrust him onto the world stage (literally!). Since then Derek has gone on to surf feared big wave destinations such as Nazare, in Portugal. Derek will make you laugh, he will challenge and inspire you to achieve beyond what you could ever dream.
