Soul Surfer Official Trailer

Soul Surfer is about a 13 year old girl named Bethany Hamilton. Bethany is such a wonderful surfer getting better all the time. She wins first place in a local competition and is going to be sponsored. Instead of going to the mission trip to Mexico she stays home to practice her surfing. As she surfs with her best friend Alana and her family her arm is suddenly bitten off by a shark. Now she faces the challenges of only having one arm. She knows her life will forever be changed.

The support of her loving family, prayers of her youth pastor, Sara (Carrie Underwood) and the support of her friends she makes it through this tough time in her life. With her heart, will, and determination she is able to surf once again. Journey with Bethany (Anna Sophia Robb) as her faith in Jesus carries her through her many trials. She endures the questioning glances, the pitying attitude of others and not being the good surfer she once was. All the time she thought surfing was her everything in life. It is not until she teaches one child in Thailand to surf does she learn that life is not all about surfing. Bethany's strong faith in Jesus Christ encourages many people. She encourages others to live up to their dreams and that anything is possible with Jesus.

This movie was based on the life story of Bethany Hamilton. I thought this was such a thrilling, fun, and heartwarming movie. I thought the quality of the movie was very good. It had a interesting story plot, wonderful actors, and beautiful scenery. The shark scene may be a little graphic for younger kids. Most of the time the actors are in bikinis  and are not wearing any shirts. Depending on how your view of modesty you may want to watch this movie just with girls. Other than that you could watch it with your whole family. I really enjoyed watching the surfing scenes, they were so thrilling and exciting. I give this movie 5 stars.

I got this movie in the library. You can purchase this movie at CBD. Here is the trailer, it was just as good as the movie :)


  1. We also borrowed the movie from the library.
    Her faith in Jesus Christ sustained her through this season of her life.

    It was very encouraging.

  2. I really enjoyed this movie too. Seeing Bethany's determination was truly inspiring.

be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer."
