25 year old Hannah Harding spent years travelling around the world with her ex-pro surfer boyfriend, Eugene Tollemache, while he competed on the pro tour.
Sick of standing on the sidelines, Hannah decided to follow in her boyfriends footsteps and five years ago, decided to give surfing a go.
"It's pretty crazy that I've come so far as it was only really a bit of fun and it beat sitting around watching my boyfriend Eugene surf for hours on end" Hanna told a1surf.com
A natural at the sport, the goofy footer started competing in 2009, and in 2011 was crowned the Women's UK Pro Surf Tour Champion.
But it was her recent win at the 2012 English National Championships, that has spun her career into a whole new direction. Hannah's fit 5'6" frame and blonde locks caught the eye of Prime Model Agency, based in Exeter UK.
Although she had done some fashion shoots in the past, modelling had taken a back seat to her new found love for surfing. However, since being approached by a photographer who discovered she was a pro surfer, she has now signed a modelling contract with the agency.
The new line of work should not be hard for the pro surfer, who has graced the covers of surfing magazines and has an existing series of lifestyle shots on her website, hanharding.com.Gallery: The World's Hottest Surfer Girls
