Teenage surfer Bethany Hamilton overcomes the odds and her own fears of returning to the water after losing her left arm in a shark attack.
The shark that attacked Bethany Hamilton was a 14ft (4.3M) tiger shark.
Love is bigger than any tidal wave or fear.
When Bethany and her Church Youth Group visited Thailand to help the tsunami victims, the victim who talk to Bethany, is speaking in Indonesian language, not Thai language, which is totally different.
During the ending credits, videos of the real Bethany Hamilton are shown, many of similar (or possibly the inspiration for) moments in the film.
