Best Answer

Surfing has been in her family for years. As far back as she can remember, she was spending most of the day in the water shredding waves. So surfing is something she has been doing and has known her whole life

What are the main characters in the book soul surfer?

If the book is anything like the movie (too often, that's not the case), then the theme of the book is that what we often think of as important or the be-all end-all really isn't that crucial sometimes and that what we're meant to do is often different than what we think it is, so keep your mind and your heart open. That's what I got from it anyway. I think a secondary theme is also that if you want something, truly know why you want it and keep working smart, not only hard, to achieve it, despite taking some bumps along the way. If anyone thinks I'm wrong, please feel free to improve my answer.
