At 13, Bethany Hamil­ton lost her left arm to a 4.3m tiger shark. Many thought it would end her surf­ing dreams. In 2007 she be­came a pro­fes­sional surfer and hasn’t looked back. Bethany is now a mother, au­thor and mo­ti­va­tional speaker with an in­spi­ra­tional ac­count to boot.

She’s the pint-sized surfer who re­ceived a wild­card en­try into the Syd­ney In­ter­na­tional Women’s Surf Pro in 2016 aged 11. Sabre Nor­ris has been on Ellen and is aim­ing for the 2020 Olympics for skate­board­ing. She was re­cently di­ag­nosed with Chiari mal­for­ma­tion when her par­ents re­alised she’d stopped grow­ing.

Su­per grom Quincy Sy­monds has a big fu­ture ahead of her in surf­ing. The Fly­ing Squir­rel, as she is oth­er­wise known, has an in­fec­tious zest for life. She was born with adrenal in­suf­fi­ciency and re­quires daily med­i­cal treat­ment. There’s no stop­ping this young champ.
