ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) -  Two weeks ago professional surfer Bethany Hamilton  finished a career best in the World Surfing  League Competition.

Bethany became an inspiration to millions when at age thirteen, she lost her left arm to a 14-foot tiger shark, one month later she returned to the water and within two years won her first national title.

Soul surfer, Bethany Hamilton, visits us this morning via satellite to discuss her surfing career, and how she spends her time when she's not in the water.

Bethany hopes to inspire vacation-challenged Americans to become 'seekenders' by encouraging everyone to get the most out of life by planning fun weekend adventures that take advantage of low gas prices and great vacation deals.
