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.
