July ’10: Denise Briggs
|| Denise Briggs
What are your best features?
My sister thinks it’s my eyes, maybe because when I’m in the sun a lot they change from green to blue. Freaky!
5/5 Maybe there’s a part for you in the X-Men
Where are you from?
All over really – grew up in Africa but call Poole home.
What is work?
Work is split between marine biology and teaching windsurfing for H20 and Club Vass.
4/5 A brain and a beauty
What do you do in your spare time?
Windsurf! Surf, wakeboard, SUP, dive, snowboard – anything in the water or on a board really.
5/5 So you are a radical human being.
What could a guy do to impress you?
Any guy that’s good on a board is the way to go – rip up a wave, one-handed spock just off the beach, nail a tantrum off the wake, stuff like that’s always impressive. Good banter goes a very long way too!
What do you like about being in a male dominated sport?
Well, I guess because there are so few girls in windsurfing it’s easier to look good even when you’re not! But it’s always great to have the guys around to get advice from them on all sorts of things…
Does a windsurfer make a good boyfriend?
Yes, windsurfing requires patience, which is good quality in a boyfriend.
4/5 That’s realistic – we like it.
What is your most memorable achievement to date?
Sailing across the Atlantic with my family and then windsurfing between some remote islands in the Caribbean with my awesome brother.
5/5 Very cool
