Bethany Hamilton was a normal girl who loved to surf, she lived in Hawaii with her two brothers and mom and dad.
one average morning they were going to find a beach they could surf at but they were having a hard time finding some waves so they were just relaxing on there boards. Bethany says she remembers thinking 'I hope the surf picks up soon...' then a 14 foot tiger shark bit off her left arm she says it all happened so fast.
Just because Bethany lost her arm it didn't stop her from surfing. One month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water and within 2 years had won her first National title.
