Soul Surfer Bethany Hamilton will be at Universal Studios CityWalk this Saturday, March 29th from 12pm-3pm signing autographs and announcing her Cobian Limited Edition Signature Sandal. The event will be held in front of Flip Flop Shops with music, fun activities, and giveaways, all FREE to the public! Best of all, a portion of the proceeds made from Bethany’s new line of sandals will go directly to her Friends of Bethany foundation, which supports shark attack survivors and traumatic amputees worldwide.
The 24-year-old athlete is flying into LA fresh off a win from the Surf N’ Sea Pipeline Women’s Pro on Oahu’s North Shore. Despite losing her left arm in a frightening tiger shark attack in 2003, the Kauai native returned to surfing just one month later, and hasn’t slowed down since. She has made a point to share her inspiring story with the world with the help of an autobiography and the 2011 film titled, ‘Soul Surfer.’
