ABILENE, TX — Tige Boats is excited to welcome the inspirational Bethany Hamilton to the Tige family! Known as one of the world’s most brave women and a world ranked surfer, Hamilton will now be adding the endless Tige wave to her surfing.
“Surfing is my passion, so taking it behind a boat is going to be a fun adventure,” stated Bethany. “I’m excited to be a part of the Tige family and represent the brand!”

At the age of thirteen, Bethany lost her left arm to a 14-foot tiger shark, which seemed to end her career as a rising surf star. One month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water and within 2 years had won her first National title. Bethany’s legend status continued to rise at the 2016 Fiji Women’s Pro as she beat out the top world ranked women.
“Bethany is an icon and role model,” stated Charlie Pigeon, Founder and CEO of Tige Boats. “Her story has inspired millions of people around the world. Bethany is the perfect fit for Tige and our culture.”
Bethany Hamilton was the inspiration behind the autobiography and movie Soul Surfer– starring Carrie Underwood, Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid, and AnnaSophia Robb. Bethany’s latest project, SURFS LIKE A GIRL, a surf film, will showcase her as one of the best women surfers in the world, is set to release in Spring 2017.
With her new partnership with Tige, Bethany can do what she loves with her family and friends on board.
