They say Bethany Hamilton has saltwater in her veins. How else could one explain the passion that drives her to surf?

Born into a family of surfers, Hamilton won her first surf competition at age eight. Just five years later, she was attacked by a tiger shark while surfing in Kauai. Bethany responded to the shark’s stealth attack with the calm of a teenage girl with God on her side, resolutely pushing aside her pain and panic while being rescued and brought back to shore. “When can I surf again?” was the first thing Bethany asked after her emergency surgery, leaving no doubt that her spirit and determination were part of a greater story—a tale of personal empowerment and spiritual grit that shows the body is no more essential to surfing, perhaps even less so, than the soul.

Now a major motion picture, Soul Surfer is the moving story of Bethany Hamilton’s triumphant return to competitive surfing and has continued to be a beacon of inspiration to all who hear it.

    " I read this aloud to a class of 7th graders. It is definitely not great writing, but we all came away liking Bethany. Who wouldn't be totally impressed with her? It got a little didactic at times which made me uncomfortable reading it aloud. I probably crossed some major lines that I shouldn't have. "

    " I loved it so much. I made me realize that I should be grateful that I have two arms and not one. "

    " Bethany was the main character. She didn't change a lot, but her faith in God is more than ever. She has a lot of faith in god because she believed that God was on her side when she was in the hospital and helping her. She was realistic because she did what human beings did. I would compare her with the movie because it has the same life and other people that doesn't have an arm. I think I am most like Alana because she cares a lot about her friends and I do too. The qualities that Bethany used to save the problem was the courage and belief. She believed in God and she believes that he is always with her. She also thinks that she will not die after her arm was eaten. "
