Bethany blogs on just missing World Tour qualification
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 December, 2008 : - - Hi friends! This month was honestly quite dissapointing because I surfed my final surf contest of the year which was to determine whether or not I made the WCT (World Championship Tour).
I missed qualifying by about one or two heats! But I know that if it was what Jesus wanted, He would have allowed it; and it wasn't! But I am very glad for my good friend Alana because she will most likely qualify!!
I've been surfing a lot and getting some fun waves on Oahu! One day, I was surfing Sunset and I was having a blast, then on my last wave i Fell somehow on my board and hit my chin; I ended up getting 7 stiches! It healed really good and I didn't have to stay out of the water!
I hope you had a delightful Thanksgiving! And Remember, whether you win or loose, in whatever you do, don't forget to be thankful for all you have and for all Jesus has done for us!!!
