Full Name: Lizzie Smith
What are your best features?
I think I’ll let you decide for yourselves, but my eyebrows get some attention!
3/5 Certainly getting some of our attention!
Where are you from?
Kent in the UK, but I live in Dahab, Egypt; just slightly warmer, windy and super flat freestyle heaven!
5/5 Sounds like a good move.
What is work?
I work as an instructor for Club Vass in Dahab, which involves teaching, sailing, a fair share of partying and fancy dress… what more
could you want?
4/5 Well that is a good question…
What watersports do you do?
Windsurfing, surfing, SUPing, wakeboarding, diving, free diving and anything else I am given the opportunity to do!
5/5 Impressive! Where can we sign up for lessons?
What is your most memorable achievement in watersports?
Every time I land a new move it’s pretty memorable but I guess my first Vulcan was a pretty exciting moment, after a lot of hard work and being told I wasn’t even ready to start trying it, it felt awesome! First board slapping forward loop is pretty high up there too!
5/5 This girl’s got style!
What should a guy do to impress you?
Be a great windsurfer but not take himself to seriously and make it about having fun!
What makes a windsurfer a good boyfriend?
It means they’re fit and can share my passion for windsurfing
What qualities would your perfect man have?
A nice smile to go with a great sense of humour, a love of windsurfing and partying!
5/5Now that we can manage.
What do you like about being in a male dominated sport?
All the males… plus it pushes me harder to keep up with the lads, going faster and bigger. I don’t like to be beaten and they, nor I, will let being a girl be an
4/5 Girl power!
What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?
Killing a snake and eating its still beating heart… Windsurfing wise; sailing 3/4 mast high waves in Esperance as my first ever wave experience, pretty daunting but an amazing adrenaline rush!
2/5 Eating a snakes heart?!?! Are we reading correctly? That’s not wild, that’s damn crazy!
What do you prefer and why? a)freestyle sessions: slow to start, then lots of spinning and contorting your body into crazy positions.
b)speed sessions: super fast, high adrenaline but it’s over before you know it
c)wave sessions: a nice smooth ride, where you’re in control and can try something new if you’re feeling adventurous
I’m a freestyle girl most of the time, but I love it all and have the energy for a session of each if the wind can keep blowing
