Habe erst mal eine ganze Weile ihre Surfkünste bewundert, bevor ich bemerkt habe, dass sie nur einen Arm hat ! (Das war doch die schreckliche Geschichte mit der Hai-Attacke...) Wirklich unglaubliche Leistung.

I love her attitude and charisma in the face of adversity, it's humbling to me. Every time I listen to her speak so openly on a tragic time in her life, it reminds me of how she's much the wiser and even stronger than she was prior to that day. Now, we need to find this girl an arm because if she can do this with one arm with ease... she could move mountains with two.
It's one thing to live in a Hawaii s saying, "no regrets,", but it's another to live life that way. What an excellent human being she is and so humble.

I'm glad to have gotten to see her on YouTube competing in Sept. 2015 (Round 1 was yesterday) during the Swatch Women's Pro as the wild card!

sister we watch this and it is a nice movie to watch because me and my sister we don't like to go in the ocean that much so

I had watched videos of her surfing before she lost her arm,  She really has a lot of determination to surf with one arm, not to mention the courage it would take after what happened to her. If there was a world championship for one arm surfers she would be the champ.  She could beat anybody that has one arm, male or, female. Most people  would never get back in the water after experiencing what she did.. She is the most motivational person I know of. She is a really good person, and I have the upmost admiration for her.

Thanks for the motivation and surfing tips. I am one armed surfer too. I didn't lose it. but, I lost the ability to use it. So, its just a piece of flesh that i can't use. But, I am luckier than most people. I lost mine in a motorcycle accident. I hope to get surfing again when i get some money to get a board to try again.

For those who surf do know how hard it is to do what you do.
You are the inspiration that if you can want it.
I see you as very positive and with that eternal smile.
I've enchanted.

 Para los que hacemos surf sabemos lo dificil que es hacer lo que tu haces.
Eres la inspiracion de que si quieres se puedes.
Te veo como muy positiva y con esa sonrisa eterna.
Me has encantado.

I think this chick is way awesome for continuing her passion for surfing even after such a traumatizing and crippling incident!!!!! With all the little surfing innovations and inventions out there, I'm surprised someone hasn't come up with some kind of small but powerful motor attached to the fins of the board to help surfers get through big breakers as well as help power them into large, fast waves that may otherwise be difficult or impossible while just paddling.

Mi sono accorto solo dopo che gli mancava un braccio. Subito non l'ho notato, certo è che dove uno vuole veramente arrivare, ci arriva ,cazzi non ne ha voluti, si vede anche che è felice lo si vede sempre dagli occhi e da quello stupendo sorriso che ha.
