Hawaii Today was our second day of filming Beyond Sight in Hawaii, December trip. It was an incredible morning filming blind surfer Derek Rabelo surfing Pipeline with John John Florence and several other amazing pro surfers. After several hours of catching waves and filming we headed to the Billabong house for a BBQ. Derek had a wonderful visit with Joel Parkinson, Jack Freestone, Luke Egan and Taj Burrow. Then Derek went out for a beautiful late afternoon surf session at Pipeline with TJ Barron and Ricardo Dos Santos. Derek, his surf coach, and Bryan all got great waves today at Pipe and the footage of so many top surfers saying hello to Derek was better than we expected! A huge thank you to Billabong for making it happen today and for inviting us to the Pipe Masters to film the BEYOND SIGHT movie about blind surfer Derek Rabelo!
