After being struck by a car in 2011, Llywelyn's life changed forever. A surfer before the accident, Llywelyn was bound to find his way back to the ocean where he found the water to be much needed relief from the day to day pain that came along with his amputation. With a strong competitive drive he became the sole represenative of Wales at the 2016 ISA World Adaptive Surfing Championships where he finished 5th place in his division.

Llywelyn will have his choice of any Firewire surfboard he wants (stock permitting). We hope this will help him push his performance even further to one day reach his ultimate goal of representing Wales in the Paralympics. 

Congratulations Llywelyn!
