If you follow surfing you're probably familiar with Bethany Hamilton. If not, the nutshell version is she lost her left arm at the shoulder to a tiger shark while surfing near her home in Hawaii 16 years ago. She's 29 now, married with two kids and still surfs professionally (she was back in the water one month after losing the arm at age 13). She competed in the Nissan Supergirl contest this past weekend in Oceanside, CA, and while she didn't advance out of her heat, she took on arguably the largest wave of her heat. Look closely on the shot where she's going up the face of the wave and you can see her one concession to the lack of a second arm: a small hangrip to allow her to keep a hold on the board when ducking under waves.
