    ON LOCATION WITH BETHANY - STAR IN YOUR OWN SURF ACTION FILM WITH BETHANY!
    This is one of the ultimate experiences Bethany is offering ONLY through Kickstarter. If you love to surf and have always wanted to have someone make you look great on camera then this is your chance! Experience what it is like not only to make a surf film - but to star in one!! Yep, award winning sports filmmaker Aaron Lieber (aka me) will meet you at the beach bright and early. I will film you all getting ready and warming up for your surf session. Bethany will arrive shortly after and you will hit the waves together for an hour. After your surf session you will head back up on the beach and get ready to head to a private lunch with Bethany at a local restaurant or cafe. Good food and great conversation - we promise! Then it's time for me to hit the edit suite, mix in some great music tracks and make a 60 second sports film of the day to make you look great! We will then post this on YouTube and Bethany will personally post it out through her social media - and tag you of course - so you can share it with all your friends. It does not get much more personal than this. ONLY 4 WILL BE OFFERED AND IT IS A GROUP LEVEL. The date and time is subject to Bethany's schedule in 2015 and the filming will either take place in Orange County California or Kauai - whatever works best for the group and Bethany. PLUS you will also receive a personalized signed copy of Body and Soul, PLUS a signed Soul Surfer DVD PLUS receive a digital download link when Surfs Like a Girl releases in 2015.
