Soul Surfer, a movie about Kauai's own Bethany Hamilton, will be featured FREE at Poipu Beach Park at 8:00pm on Friday, July 29, 2011. This event is part of the Koloa Plantation Days 10 day event that started on July 22, 2011.
You'll want to GO EARLY to reserve a nice spot at the beach park. Bring a beach towel or beach chair. This is also a great way to support Koloa Elementary school, who will be hosting a food concession both at the event.
Soul Surfer is an amazing and inspirational "true" story of Bethany Hamilton, who lives on the northshore of Kauai. At age 13, Bethany is attacked by a shark while surfing. My wife and I have already watched this movie twice. Being parents of bodyboarders around the same age as Bethany, we were all at the same surfing contests that were held all over the island. Bethany was just "one of the kids". However, after watching this movie, you will realize that she is really more than "one of the kids".
