31 Mar Bethany Hamilton’s story will go to the Big Screen
Our very own and very brave Bethany Hamilton will have her story told on the big screen. Filming has begun in Hanalei of the story of Bethany, from the shark attack that took her arm off all the way to the shoulder, her rescue, her recovery and her life after. The surf community really rallied around the Hamilton’s after the accident and had fund-raisers to help cover Bethany medical expenses. She has an incredible spirit and strength that allowed her to not only overcome this tragedy but to thrive in spite of it. She has continued to surf competitively and fearlessly. Her love to the ocean is unchallenged. I hope the movie about her life does her justice.
