Llewelyn 'Sponge' Williams crowned World Champion at the 2022 ISA Para Surfing World Championships!
Representing Wales at the 2022 World Para Surfing Championships at Pismo Beach, California, Sponge has battled through a field of top international competitors to become the Men's World Champion in the kneeling division.
This achievement was long in the making, with several close finishes in previous years.
2022 is definitely Sponge's year, and what a way to start the festive season.
The WSF congratulate Llewelyn on this massive achievement. You deserve it! You are the best in the world!

The Wales Para Surfing Team is heading to California in December to compete at the ISA Para Surf World Championships.
The Team could do with a little extra help with funding. We are looking for sponsors and individual donations to add to the pot. Please get in touch if you run a company that would like to sponsor or would like to make a donation.
