Bethany Meilani Hamilton-Dirks (born February 8, 1990) is an American professional surfer who survived a 2003 shark attack in which her left arm was bitten off, but ultimately returned to—and was victorious in—professional surfing. She wrote about her experience in the 2004 autobiography Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board. In April 2011, the feature film Soul Surfer was released; it was based on the book and additional interviews. She has appeared on many television shows since the loss of her arm.

I think Bethany is great I hope I get to meet her she is strong brave great surfer nice. It must have been real hard for the family cause she nearly died at 13 she was lucky to live I have red her book and seen soul surfer so inspiring Bethany is my rolemodel. So stop being mean to her your just jealous because she gets attention.

listen up Nobody gives a crap Bethany Hamilton is a wonderful girl and you are acting like a five year old. If anybody got there arm bitten off by a shark while surfing and never tried it again, then yeah they would not be a hero or famous. But this wonderful girl, Bethany, had the courage and strenght to getr back on the boarsd. so you ignorant person needs to stoop saying this crap about her!
