A 15-year-old schoolboy from Markyate is celebrating after winning the Amateur British Jet Ski Freestyle Championship.
Jack Moule, a pupil at Roundwood Park School, was the youngest competitor in the competition but that didn't stop him blitzing the opposition to add the title to the National Jet Ski title he won last year.
Jack, who only took up the sport in 2007, had to battle his way through six rounds of competition performing a two-minute freestyle routine at venues all across the UK.
A delighted Jack said: "I am so happy, I can't believe I did it! I had to ski really well at every round and hold my nerve as I was competing against the reigning champion and we had a great battle.

Talking of his Arizona adventure, Jack said: "I don't think I will win as there are so many other top riders taking part from all over the world with more powerful skis than mine.
"But I don't mind, the experience will be amazing and just to be going with my Mum and Dad as The British Champion is enough for me. Anything else would be a bonus this year.
