I tried surfing once. I ended up with salt water in my eyes and sand in my bathing suit (yikes!) so it’s always blown my mind to see Bethany Hamilton surfing with one arm.
Hamilton lost her arm to a shark attack at age 13 back in 2003. Many were inspired by her determination to get right back on the board, and have her story heard both in her autobiography, Soul Surfer, and a movie by the same name.
Hamilton’s making waves again, this time being photographed surfboarding at six months pregnant.
An inspiration to surfers, mothers, and people everywhere, Hamilton is doing what she does best and showcasing that women are amazing!
