One of the most recognizable surfers in the world, Bethany Hamilton’s story is one of overcoming adversity and becoming an inspiration for millions. Her passion for surfing is unmatched. When she was 13 years old a tiger shark took her left arm off the coast of her native Kauai. Undeterred, she got back in the water, back on the board, and her resiliency and unwillingness to give up has carried her to international accolade. Books and Hollywood bio pics have been made, but through it all, surfing’s always been her number one passion.
