It's a tough life being a sponsored professional surfer - travelling to exotic locations to compete in surf contests but someone has to do it.

The Sri Lanka 'Champion of Champions' surf contest was recently held in perfect three to four foot surf; attracting over fifty contestants from around the globe.

This year, the women's final was an all Welsh affair, closely contested between the Swansea duo - Beth Mason and Gwen Spurlock.

Beth Mason (Swansea) eventually took first place with a 0.77 lead, leaving Gwen Spurlock (Swansea) - the current leader of the women's UK Pro Tour to scoop up a very close second place. Jo Dennison (Pembroke) came in a credible third place, ahead of Raine Jackson (Australia).

Well done to all three surfers. It's an exciting time for women's surfing in Wales currently and these girls are proving that they have what it takes compete at the highest level.
