Indo Board Team Rider, Bethany Hamilton’s inspiring story, Soul Surfer, is scheduled to be in theatres April 8, 2011.  Bethany’s story caught world wide attention when she suffered from a brutal shark attack on October 31, 2003. The surfing community as a whole, is an extremely small one, and as a world family, we all prayed for her full recovery.  The good vibes and hard work payed off as we exuberantly watched again Bethany doing what she loves so much: surfing. Here at Indo Board, we are stoked to have been a part of Bethany’s rehabilitation from the very beginning, and we are tickled pink to see her story coming soon to the big screen. In this photo: Fellow surfer and Indo Man, Hunter Joslin, explains to the eager young Bethany correct surfing posture.
