Ambassador Bethany Hamilton – the famed celebrity surfer and inspirational speaker- will meet at the Jack's Store located at 101 Main Street, Huntington Beach, California on Sunday, March 20th from 2 p.m. to 4p.m. the public is invited and encouraged to attend this special gathering. The event is the first stop of Cobian's "Every Step Matters" inspiration-filled tour with stops along both coasts.

Hamilton will begin with an inspirational message of hope and resilience as she shares her personal story of how she lost her left arm in a tiger shark attack when she was 13 years old. Overcoming obstacles throughout her life, Hamilton, now 26, is ready to begin a new chapter – being a mom. Hamilton and husband, Adam Dirks, are proud parents to Tobias Dirks. The event will also include live music, and plenty of giveaways for attendees.

The event will also feature new styles from Bethany's Limited Edition Signature Sandal collection by Cobian, available for purchase at Jack's Surfboards. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this signature sandal collection will be donated to "Friends of Bethany," a non-profit organization supporting shark attack survivors and amputees.

"I live in sandals, so comfort and style are key ingredients to my collection," says Hamilton. "It’s been fun to help design the line and share a little bit of what I like to wear in my daily life."

The first 200 Jack's Surfboards customers who make a Cobian sandal purchase at a Jack's Surfboards retail shop will receive a VIP wristband that will grant them access to an exclusive meet and greet line at the event on March 20th for one autograph and one photo.

"We are very thrilled to carry the Bethany Collection by Cobian at several of our Jack's Surfboards stores" said Megan Mack, Jack's Surfboards Women's Buyer. "Bethany is not only a world-class surfing champion but she has an incredible story that is inspiring to all. We are looking forward to having her at our Huntington Beach store for this event!"
