What you'll do

Surfing is making its debut at the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer. The sport has come a long way from its birthplace in Hawaii to the world's largest stage, the Olympic Games. I am lucky to have spent my career as a professional surfer with the free surfers and competing pros.

While I did not train for Tokyo, as a surfing professional, I am excited to share my surfing experience with you. You'll have a chance to learn about my background and then I'll share what it's like to grow up in Hawaii, adapting with one arm as a professional surfer. We will talk about perseverance, overcoming obstacles, and becoming unstoppable. Then we'll talk about the Olympics, including what to look for in the competition, which of my friends' skills are best suited for the Tokyo waves, and what the spirit is like.

You're sure to leave a lifelong surfing fan.

I'm a wife, mother and a professional surfer from Hawaii whose life story was featured in the movie and book, “Soul Surfer.” I'm known for surviving a shark incident at age 13, losing my left arm, and for overcoming that huge life
change to ultimately become one of the best women surfers in the world. I've accomplished far more than
I could've ever dreamed ...with one arm! Now, through my social media, my new documentary and online course
program, I'm a role model and life coach who is passionate about helping YOU live "Unstoppable" too.

My daughter is a huge fan and I love Bethany’s messages of adaptability and positivity. Of course my daughter listens to Bethany way more than she listens to me 😂 so the whole experience was fantastic for her . Thanks Bethany!
