One of, if not the most, famous surfers on the planet, Bethany survived a tiger shark attack while surfing on her native Kauai when she was just thirteen years old. Less than a month after having her arm amputated following the attack, Bethany fearlessly returned to the water and was surfing better than ever. Since then, Bethany has had a major motion picture, Soul Surfer, made about her, received an MTV Teen Choice Award, towed in at Jaws, and inspired thousands of people worldwide with her story and courage.
