Friends of Bethany’s 2nd Annual retreat for young women with limb loss.
It was another waiting game for the Surf n Sea Pipeline Women’s Pro, however as time wound down with only one day remaining in the waiting period, a nice spring swell arrived to call on the ASP one star event. The 3-5ft conditions gave the ladies enough face to pull off some hard snaps and to find a few cover ups. Bethany Hamilton kicked off the first heat on fire, pulling some giant snaps in both directions and snagging a little barrel to take home the Banzai Sushi award for the best tube ride of the day.
We all know Bethany Hamilton as the surfer girl from Kauai who survived a shark attack when she was just 13-years old. From magazines to books to major motion pictures, her story has been told on myriad platforms, but never before has she shared exactly how she is able to surf with just one arm.
From battling through the shorebreak to taking off late on overhead waves, it’s remarkable to watch her in action. This is how she does it.
Bethany Hamilton has an incredible story to tell and has since become a source of inspiration world wide. Her arm was taken by a shark at the age of 13 whilst surfing off Kauai’s North Shore. With the support of friends and family and a true show of determination and faith she continued surfing and brought her story to world. Bethany’s autobiography ‘Soul Surfer’ was turned into a successful feature film which elevated her profile to be one of the most famous surfers ever.
