There are days when Bethany Hamilton is so exhausted and in need of a break, she’d rather rest in bed. But she knows in order to be unstoppable, she has to keep pushing.

Her passion for surfing, along with her family and faith, keeps her motivated.

“I think that whatever obstacles come our way, we can live our unstoppable version of life,” said Hamilton on a recent day, as she took a break between surf sessions and media interviews at the Huntington Beach Pier.

Hamilton, whose shark attack survival story and comeback as a professional surfer was made into the popular Hollywood film “Soul Surfer,” is riding her next thrilling wave onto the big screen with a documentary called “Unstoppable,” which hits 200 theaters around the country this weekend.
