Bethany Hamilton’s mother Cheri Hamilton will have a free admission book signing at the California Surf Museum at 312 Pier View Way in Oceanside on July 7th 2012 from 2 till 4 pm to present her new book “Raising A Soul Surfer.” Purchase a copy here at Amazon.
They say Bethany Hamilton has salt water in her veins. How else could one explain the passion that drives her to surf? Or that nothing—not even the loss of her arm—could come between her and the waves? "When can I surf again?" was the first thing Bethany asked after her emergency surgery, leaving no doubt that her spirit and determination were part of a greater story—a tale of personal empowerment and spiritual grit that shows the body is no more essential to surfing, perhaps even less so, than the soul.
After losing her left arm by a shark attack, Bethany Hamilton was asked in an interview what she would do if given the chance to undo the loss of her arm. Bethany replied that she would still lose it because she can embrace more people now than she ever could with both. She has become a source of inspiration to millions.
