Born into a family of surfers, Hamilton had been catching waves and trophies since she was 8 years old before her harrowing attack. Suzanne "Bobo" Bollins, a long-time family friend, says knew Hamilton had what it takes to be a champion.

"She lives and breathes the ocean. She gets the big waves. She doesn't mess around," Collins said. "...I have said to myself, 'There's the next world champion.'" (Noah Hamilton )
