Gwen Spurlock Collects Her Skoda Roomster

British women's surf champion and Swansea resident, Gwen Spurlock, 19, recently collected the keys to her brand new Skoda Roomster SE 1.2 TSI 85bhp, from Sinclair Skoda, Swansea.

Spurlock has just been awarded first place in the Women's Individual 2010 British Universities and Colleges Sport Surf Championships. Last year she was crowned UK Pro Surf Tour Women's Champion and has also held the Welsh Junior and British Junior titles.

Spurlock has just begun a course in American Studies at Swansea University following a gap year which she spent travelling the world while on a surf tour. She began surfing after joining the Mumbles Lifeguard club, at the age of nine.

After collecting the keys to her new car Miss Spurlock said: "I chose the Roomster because it looks cool and there's plenty of room inside for my surfboard and equipment. Sinclair Skoda was recommended by friends and the service I received has been great.

"I'm looking forward to putting my Roomster to good use when I'm competing, as the extra height and flexibility of the seats mean it's easier for me to find room for all my equipment. The drive feels smooth and it's really easy to park, especially for a big car. I can't wait to load it up and head to the beach!"

Andy Shorland, Sales Manager at Sinclair Skoda, added: "The Roomster is ideal for Gwen as it has a large boot and the back seats can be lowered to fit in the most awkward of sports equipment, including a surfboard. We're glad we've been able to offer a vehicle that meets all of her requirements and wish her many happy motoring miles in her new car."

Available from £11,260 on the road, the flexibility of the Skoda Roomster's interior is hard to find elsewhere. Boot capacity ranges from 450 to 1810 litres and the countless storage options will keep every driver and passenger happy.
