Cornish Teenager Takes UK Disabled Surfer Award
2:46pm 14th November 2014
A Cornish 15 year old is crowned the UK's Disabled Surfer of the Year.
Lily Rowswell from Truro is autistic and was once too scared of the sea to put a wetsuit on.
Now she is out every week with the crew from the Wave Project.
She got top honours after overcoming her fear of the water.
Dad Hugh says it has boosted her confidence and ability to make friends.
He said: "We have tried horse riding, swimming, nothing was very successful, we were quite sceptical, we went one cold, wet day and almost from the word go she loved it, and has had great fun and it has been amazing the difference in her.
"Her and her sister will go and do things together which they never did before, and just being out there and making friends, it has helped her understand about meeting people and that friendships are important."2:46pm 14th November 2014
