Truely an inspirational and mind-blowing story, we had to post it up!! (and it looks like he's riding a Killswitch!!)

From euamolongboard youtube:

Derek Rabelo, skater, surfer, blind from birth, the most peculiar radical athlete we ever heard of. Derek called our attention since the first time we saw him skateboarding. We drove 45 km to his city of Guarapari for a inspiring interview. Now we know that a good heart goes beyond sight.

Derek Rabelo, skater, surfista, cego de nascença, o atleta radical mais peculiar que já ouvimos falar. Derek chamou a atenção do EuAmoLongboard desde a primeira vez que vimos ele andando de skate. Pegamos a estrada e fomos visita-lo em Guarapari, 45 km distante de nossa cidade, para uma entrevista inspiradora. Agora sabemos que um bom coração vai além da visão.
