Bethany Hamilton lost her arm to a tiger shark at the age of thirteen, but this terrifying attack didn't stop Bethany from chasing her life-long dream of becoming a professional surfer. Bethany Hamilton has conquered the giant walls of the ocean as well as taking on the 'motherhood' journey … all with only one arm. She is an inspiration who never stops. Bethany Hamilton is Unstoppable.
The Endless Summer is the ultimate surfing adventure, spanning the globe, from continent to continent, in search of the perfect wave! From the uncharted waters of West Africa, to the shark-filled seas of Australia, to the tropical paradise of Tahiti and beyond, surfers from California manage to accomplish, in a few months, what most people can never do in a lifetime … live their dream! Director Bruce Brown has created a movie so powerful that it has become a timeless masterpiece that continues to capture the imagination of every new generation. When The Endless Summer first played in theatres, audiences were so captivated that they lined up to see it again and again, totally spellbound by the exhilarating and spellbinding photography. In fact, the most compelling part of the film is the actual sport of surfing and once you have seen it, you will never forget why!
