The Inertia

In case you weren’t already aware, Bethany Hamilton might be the most inspiring surfer of all time. Today, just six months after birthing her first child, Tobias Hamilton, Bethany towed into macking Pe’ahi. And she did so with trademark elegance.

For those who don’t remember, this is the same woman who surfed macking Teahupoo (pregnant) and stomped a dirty air reverse (with one arm). Oh, yeah, and she survived a shark attack.

Bethany has been filming for her new movie “Surf’s Like A Girl” by Aaron Lieber, which tells her story now 10-years after a shark attack took her left arm. If the laundry list of exploits above are any indicator of how this film will turn out, we’d recommend you get ready for a game changer.

    Add “God” + ugly surfing + posing with the biggest terrorist of modern time (Obama, ” because he does such great things” = poster God girl. These white hawaiians have no heart. Its been seen and proven, anyone physically fit can tow surf. Ill respect her, not for surfing big waves, but when she can start speaking against the wars “her great leader” is promoting. That includes beloved Kauai where the US army now manipulates nuclear waste.

      I’m guessing he puts a lot of effort into it since he acts like he knows what he’s talking about.
