Most people thought that her surfing career is over, but Bethany has something else in mind. Only two weeks after the attack, Bethany is already teaching herself how to surf with one arm, “I had to learn how to paddle evenly with one arm, and when I felt the wave pick me up, I had to put my hand flat on the center of the deck to get my feet…” (pg. 180-181) This explains the difficulty of surfing with only one hand. Shortly after getting on the board for the first time Bethany exceeded at surfing and continued doing it professional even with a missing arm.
I did not see any dolphins in the morning but my grandparents told me that we were going to go see some dolphins on a dolphin cruise. Because Gulf Shores is on the Gulf of Mexico dolphins like to ride the waves when boats go out. We drove to the dolphin cruise place and we got on the boat. There were lots of old people on the boat. My sisters and I were the only kids on the boat.
I got my dad to take a picture of me holding the shark then after that I threw it back in the water. After I threw the shark back we decided to go back to the beach house. When we got back to the beach house we didn’t do much we just chilled out for the last night because we had to leave the next day around
“You’re too small” is something I have been constantly told my whole life. This statement has become more repetitive as I began my job as a lifeguard two years ago. When I was interviewing for my first job, I was told, I’m not sure if you can work here, you are a little small and may not be able to handle the job.” As I heard him say, what I’ve heard hundreds of times before, I knew he was wrong. I had been swimming competitively for six years and participated in numerous Junior Lifeguard Programs.
Ric Spencer acted as a foreshadowing character. He missed the period or the time when he used to be a lifeguard. Therefore, he was always advising Josh to be careful, because in few seconds bad events can happen and devastate lives’ as the drowning of Billy Mandel. Further, in this story Ric played the principal character by telling stories to Josh to be careful and enjoy the responsibility of a lifeguard. Josh listened to all those advised given to him by the earlier lifeguard.
I stayed on my board long enough to where everybody else fell off except me, then I could no longer stay on. I had fallen into a wave that was deceivingly beautiful. It was crystal clear with blue undertones and smelled of sweet seaweed but it was mighty dangerous. When I had fallen into that wave I started to feel pretty weird. I got leg cramps that I had thought just came from falling off my board
Even with all of the different forms of medicine in the world, people still feel helpless when their children have a disorder that cannot be cured. One of the last resorts people may go to is called dolphin therapy. People look into dolphin therapy to help with their situation. Not everyone should look to this as a possible source of help, though, because the whole process leads to many risks for everyone involved. Dolphin therapy, using dolphin assistance in hydrotherapy sessions, has shown to be effective in many cases but is controversial in the eyes of the public due to the risk to the patients and potential harm to the dolphins.
Who am I kidding? I'm never going back to school! All was going good, until I remembered I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. I only vaguely remembered the video they showed at boarding school about boats, in addition to my family for boat rides every month when my father visited my mom and I. I just kept driving to my best ability, but wait- where exactly was I going?
If we just stay as kids That time I was younger, littler, but stronger than now. At that time I could fall down as many times possible, but in the next second I would be standing again. Is strange how people grow up, but can become weaker than before, that day I could almost die in that beach with that deep blue in my vision but right after I standup again and repeat the same thing. That was my first Surf experience, I made surf classes in Praia do Rosa with my brother while we were in our family road trip, from that trip the words “don’t stand in your knees” echoes in my head all time when I’m trying to surf or seeing someone surfing. The just one thing you can’t do when you are catching the wave.

It was a pretty crazy home. Also across the driveway, was what we called, the village. It was just a hidden campsite where the volunteers stayed in their campers. Everyone knew everyone, and new volunteers switched with the old ones every couple
Sonny’s father takes him on his boat out to a sand bar. After several tries Sonny gave up. He wasn’t as good of a swimmer as his father but his father talks to him about Sonny’s mother and how she would have taught him. Sonny’s father went back in and he tried to catch a stingray but it swam away. This of course scared Sonny even more.
Thirty-seven year old Salvador Alvarenga, a fisherman living and working in Mexico, loved his 25-foot long canoe shaped boat. On November 18, 2012, he planned to be with it in the deep, tranquilizing waters of the Pacific Ocean. He had nothing holding him back, his daughter lived in El Salvador with her mother. Ezequiel Córdoba, Alvarenga’s 22-year old crewman, and Alvarenga loaded the boat with thousands of pounds of equipment that would soon be filled with a variety of seafood. He had known there was a storm coming, but he refused to pass up possible catch no matter the danger.
Here we are, out in the middle of nowhere, just flying around. None of us know how we got here or what we are doing, maybe we are trying to fly to heaven, maybe we just want to have some fun. We could be dreaming, we could be dying, or we could just be imagining. It’s just my brother Christian, my cousins David, Dakota, and Skyla, and of course me. Oh and the pilot is my Grandma Grape’s.
