They say Bethany Hamilton has saltwater in her veins.How else could one explain the passion that drives her to surf? How else could one explain that nothing not even the loss arm could come between her and the waves? That Halloween morning in Kauai, Hawaii, Bethany responded to the sharks stealth attack with clam of a girl with God on her side. Pushing pain and panic aside, she began to paddle with one arm, focusing on a single thought: ''Get to the beach. . . . ''And when the first thing Bethany wanted to know after surgery was ''When can l surf again?'' it became clear that her spirit and determination were part of a greater story tale of courage and faith that this soft spoken girl would come to share with the world
