Hawaiian Amputee Surfing Star

On February 8, 2004 Bethany Hamilton celebrated her 14th birthday.

Among the many phone calls, greeting cards and emails she received, there might be one or the other message from someone she did not know, but has inspired through her personal strength and determination.

Only weeks after she became an arm amputee because of a shark attack while surfing near Tunnels Beach on October 31, she decided to go into the waters again.

On January 10 she finally returned to competition and placed fifth in her age group in the Open Women Division of a National Scholastic Surfing Association meet at Banyans.

Bethany Hamilton is from Princeville, Kaua'i, the tropical paradise amidst the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, about 20 minutes by air from Honolulu.

She has been surfing since before she could walk, with both of her parents being active surfers along with her two older brothers.
