    Former Pro Surfer Teaches Hope with Grace Christian

    in Motivation

    Former pro surfer, Seth Elmer, talks about his life now mentoring disadvantaged youth and providing those in recovery a sense of hope and direction through his training program that was developed out of a desire to be of service.  During his last two years as a pro surfer, Elmer raised funds for surfers who suffered spinal cord injuries.  What came out of that experience was a desire to help others in his community.  He eventually started a program mentoring disadvantaged youth and teaching them to surf.  Through their stories and difficulties, he was motivated to develop a training program that gave them, and eventually those in recovery, a way to acknowedge what they were experiencing and come to know a new way to live.  These training programs are compiled in a workbook that will be sold on Amazon in the future. Elmer also discussed his work as a writer and poet, and read one of his poems from a book of poems about love entitled "The Flower Is You:  Love Poems by Seth Elmer".  This book will be available on Amazon later this year.


    Seth Elmer started surfing at age 5 while growing up in Newport Beach, CA.  He became a pro surfer at age 17, and began using street drugs as well.  He eventually healed his life and decided to use his position as a pro surfer to help others who had been injured surfing.  Later, as a surf instructor, he began mentoring disadvantaged youth in Hawaii, which led to a training program that is now being used with those in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.  Elmer has always been a writer and poet and has a book of poetry coming out in the near future.

    "Soul Surfer" Bethany Hamilton

    in Business

    Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley The Total Tutor will interview Surf Icon Bethany Hamilton!


    Bethany Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of faith, determination, and hope. Born into a family of surfers on February 8, 1990, on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, Bethany began surfing at a young age. At the age of eight, Bethany entered her first surf competition, the Rell Sun Menehune event on Oahu, where she won both the short and long board divisions. This sparked a love for surf competition within her spirit.


    At the age of thirteen, on October 31, 2003, Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark while surfing off Kauai’s North Shore. The attack left Bethany with a severed left arm. After losing over 60% of her blood, and making it through several surgeries without infection, Bethany was on her way to recovery with an unbelievably positive attitude. Lifeguards and doctors believe her strong water sense and faith in God helped get her through the traumatic ordeal.


    Miraculously, just one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water to continue pursuing her goal to become a professional surfer. In January of 2004, Bethany made her return to surf competition; placing 5th in the Open Women’s division of that contest. With no intention of stopping, Bethany continued to enter and excel in competition. Just over a year after the attack she took 1st place in the Explorer Women’s division of the 2005 NSSA National Championships – winning her first National Title.
