When Bethany first arrives home after the attack, she has a sheet covering her stump from the reporters. When she exits the car, you can see where the actress's actual arm is under the sheet.
During the ending credits, videos of the real Bethany Hamilton are shown, many of similar (or possibly the inspiration for) moments in the film.
