"When you come back from a loss, beat the odds, and never say never - you find a champion."
The inspirational true story of Bethany Hamilton.
Born into a surfing family on February 8, 1990, Bethany entered her first surf competition - winning both the short and long board divisions - by the time she was eight. Then in 2003 on the morning of Halloween, Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark. Leaving her with a severed left arm, she lost over 60% of her blood but survived.
Bethany’s sheer determination miraculously paid off and just one month after the attack, she returned to the water. Two months later, Bethany placed fifth in the Open Women's division surf competition and just over a year after the attack she won her first National Title. In 2007, Bethany realized her dream and turned pro. Bethany has since participated in numerous Association of Surfing Professionals and World Tour Events with her major highlight being a second place finish in the ASP 2009 World Junior Championships. "It has been an incredible journey for me and now, I'm just so excited to share it!" says Bethany.
