Ron Jon Surf Shop to Host Bethany Hamilton Autograph Signing

The newly opened Ron Jon Surf Shop at The Florida Mall will host Bethany Hamilton Saturday, March 26 from 1 – 2 p.m. for an autograph signing. Bethany will be signing posters for up to the first 100 fans to arrive.

In addition, a limited-edition Bethany Hamilton tank top by Rip Curl will be available for purchase at the event.

Bethany Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of determination, faith and hope. During a surf session in 2003, Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark, which bit off her left arm and seemed to end her career as a rising surf star. Just one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water and just over a year later won her first National title. In 2007, Bethany realized her dream of surfing professionally and since then her story has been told in an autobiography and in the 2011 film, “Soul Surfer.” Bethany is also involved in numerous charitable efforts. Now as a professional surfer, wife, mother, Christian motivational speaker and healthy lifestyle advocate, Bethany continues to touch and inspire lives globally.

If you missed Bethany at an event at The Mall at Millenia last year, this is a great opportunity to meet her and receive her autograph.

My name is Mark and I’m a mall-aholic. As a native Orlandoan, I’ve been visiting them since I can remember. I’ve also worked in a couple and consider myself a self-appointed expert. There’s been a lot of change when it comes metro Orlando’s mall landscape, and I’ve taken it upon myself to chronicle it. Each mall has a story to tell, and having graduated from the University of Central Florida and double majored in journalism and radio/television, I feel I’m best equipped to make those stories come alive here at Orlando Mall Guide. So whether you’re a local or a tourist needing a shopping break from the attractions, I’m your hookup.
