BETHANY Hamilton thinks audiences are “stoked” about Soul Surfer — the new movie based on her life.
More than seven years ago, before dawn on Halloween morning, Hamilton had her left arm taken off by a 14-foot tiger shark while they were sharing the waters off the shore of Kauai, Hawaii.
“When can I surf again?” the 13-year-ancient questioned after emergency surgery.
Bethany returned nearly immediately, hoping to help others overcoming obstacles place in front of them.
Hamilton, now 21 and on the women’s pro tour since 2007, talked about the audience’s reaction to the film.
