A woman who lost her leg in a life-changing car crash is taking the surfing world by storm - placing fifth in the World Para Surfing Championship less than 12 weeks after her first surf lesson.<br />
<br />
Zoe Smith had not really surfed before her accident but decided to give it a go last year after seeing a video of one of her now team-mates surfing on Instagram.<br />
<br />
She had her first lesson in September and Zoe competed in her first competition in December - the World Championships in Pismo Beach, California, with 24 different countries competing.
