Heart of a Soul Surfer: The Bethany Hamilton Story

Enjoy Bethany's inspiring true story shared from her heart and perspective.

Bethany Hamilton, a 13-year-old girl destined for a successful surfing career, lost her arm to a 14-foot tiger shark on Oct. 31, 2003. The attack didn't cause this determined Soul Surfer to give up. Instead, it compelled her to discover her purpose in life as she overcame the loss of her arm and got back on the board just three weeks later. Heart of a Soul Surfer digs deep into the heart of Bethany's abiding faith in God, and tackles difficult questions such as 'Why does God allow bad things to happen in our lives?' It features exclusive surf & family footage of Bethany before & after the attack, including Bethany's first attempts at surfing with one arm, as well as her winning the 2005 NSSA National Surfing Championship just 19 months later.
