Ocean Minded, Inc. named Bethany Hamilton to its team of athletes. Five Years ago Hamilton shocked the world with her undying passion after losing her left arm in a vicious shark attack on the North Shore of Kauai, Hawaii, her home.
Bethany joins the Ocean Minded team on her 18th birthday and is focused on finishing the Womens World Qualifying Series (WQS) in a prime position, where she is currently seated third. Recently, she achieved her career best when she reached the semifinals at the Roxy Surf Festival in Phillip Island, Australia.
“There isnt a surfer on the planet that better defines the phrase Ocean Minded,“ stated Bob Tanner, Ocean Mindeds Director of Marketing. “Bethany is a source of inspiration for people all over the world, and we are thrilled to have her as a Brand Ambassador.“
“We are so honored to have Bethany as part of our team. She fits our DNA and shares the Ocean Minded values of Live, Protect, Respect! She is a true ocean girl and 100% Ocean Minded,“ said Gary Ward, the companys Founder.
“I love wearing my Ocean Minded sandals,“ Hamilton stated. “I look forward to promoting the Ocean Minded footwear brand and working together with them to produce a signature sandal.“
