Her dreams of becoming a proffesional surfer were shattered on October 31, 2003. Bethany had been attacked by a 14 foot shark while surfing with friends at home on the North Shore's of Kauai. Unfortunatly Bethany lost her left arm from this attack but it surely did not stop Bethany from surfing.This made her relationship with Christ a lot stronger! Her inspirational story and recovery has touched the hearts of people all around the world.
Ever since Bethany lost her arm she has been feautured all over the media including commercials, magazines, newspapers, talk shows and more. She also has her own book out now which you can get at a bookstore near you called SOUL SURFER.
