Bethany Hamilton has a truly amazing story, and she’s been pushing her abilities and the limits of surfing ever since!
At the age of 13 years old, she lost her arm to a shark. Bethany’s story of courage and perseverance to continue surfing made a global impact on the world. Professional surfer and 11-time world champ Kelly Slater was among the many inspired by Hamilton. After the creation of his ‘perfect wave pool’, he slowly started to exclusively invite friends, family, and professional surfers to his Surf Ranch.
As you can see, it was a treat for Kelly to have Bethany, her husband Adam and their son Tobias over to test out the perfect wave pool!
