Bethany Lost Her Left Arm In A Shark Attack

Bethany was surfing in her hometown in 2003 when the shark attack happened. She was only thirteen when the incident happened. In the attack, she lost more than half of her blood; it was a miracle that she survived.

Bethany had to give up her left arm to survive. Now with only one arm, surfing was a difficult task, let alone doing it professionally. She described the shark attack like this:

"I was holding onto my board, with my thumb, because I probably didn't want to get pulled under. It was like pulling me back and forth, not like pulling me underwater. Just like, you know how you eat a piece of steak? It was kind of like that."

However, even after losing her arm, Bethany didn't give up. Through her sheer perseverance and passion, she was back on the surfing scene only twenty-six days after. Then two years later, she went on to become the national champion.
