What are your best features?
I find this hard to answer, but people have told me I have good legs (which luckily are pretty nice and tanned at the moment).
4/5 So modest…
Where are you from?
Originally I lived in Birmingham but moved away and escaped the Brummy accent when I was 7. Then it was Hertfordshire until uni. Since then I learned to windsurf and haven’t spent much time in the UK, so it’s hard to say!
4/5 No tying you down, eh?
What is work?
I currently live in Egypt freelancing windsurf coaching and photography. I have also started running clinics with my boyfriend Phil Richards trying to get more people into windsurfing. Check out our website www.getwindsurfing.com to find out more.
4/5 Have done, looks good to us…
What do you do in your spare time?
When not working I’m windsurfing. If I’m not windsurfing I love getting in the water to do watershoots for my friends. I also really enjoy volleyball, cycling and just being outside, active and with friends.
4/5 Somehow we figured that answer wouldn’t be ‘as little as possible’!
What could a guy do to impress you?
Sail like a legend all day, come off the water and suggest we go get steak for dinner, and then tell me he’s also booked us tickets to South Africa for the winter.
4/5 Reckon we could all aspire to that…
What do you like about being in a male dominated sport?
Guys don’t worry about things so much – they just want to go and have fun on the water and then party after.
4/5 That’s about the size of it.
Does a windsurfer make a good boyfriend?
Definitely! If he wasn’t a windsurfer he would have to start learning fast…
What is your most memorable achievement to date?
Learning to catch and ride waves in Cape Town. It’s the first place I experienced waves, and its such an amazing place that you can’t possibly forget it, especially days being out in 3 or 4m swell when I never imagined I’d be able to.
5/5 Fair play..
