Recently, our Stand Tall Ambassador and blind big-wave surfer, Derek Rabelo recently surfed a barrel wave in Teahupo’o, Tahiti.

Derek shared his experience on his official instagram page:
“Believing in yourself is one of the most powerful virtues you can have.

Surfing Teahupo’o was a dream, but as a blind surfer it posted a huge challenge, one I was determined to overcome.

Challenges make us stronger and you will never fail if you keep trying.

Faith always above fear. 📷 @lemosimages
