Hawaii’s ‘soul surfer’ has a thing for Tebow

HONOLULU — You can’t escape Tim Tebow. Not even at the Pro Bowl, where the Broncos QB wasn’t even invited.

No, Tebow didn’t make a surprise appearance here in Oahu (unless the NFL has some plan we’re not aware of). But last night’s NFL-sponsored Luau at the MarriottĀ Ihilani included some Tebow Time.

The league went with a surfing theme, bringing a number of current and legendary professional surfers on stage to discuss their craft, including 21-year-old “Soul Surfer” Bethany Hamilton.

Hamilton, best known for her work as a professional surfer in the wake of a shark attack that took her entire left arm, told last night’s crowd of Pro Bowlers and their families that she has a little crush on, you guessed it, Tebow.

Hamilton was bummed to find out Tebow wouldn’t be here this week.

“I’m hoping someone here can help me get in touch with him,” she noted.

No word on if she was successful in her quest.
