What are your best features?

I’ve been told my bum and my laugh… I would say being body confident is best.

5/5 That’s the spirit!

Where are you from?

Originally Basingstoke but I got out of there quick! I’ve travelled Australia and Fiji, and being part Greek I love chilling in the Greek islands. I’m now based in Devon, three miles from the up-and-coming windsurf spot Lyme Regis…

5/5 A Greek Aphrodite, eh?

What is work?

Used to be teaching windsurfing, sailing and wakeboarding… now it’s Boylo’s! I decided to combine my business management degree with my passion for watersports and run a watersports shop: Live the dream…

5/5 Hold on – you own a surfshop?!? (Don’t suppose your dad happens to run a brewery too?)

What do you do in your spare time?

All things water. Windsurf, surf, wakeboard, mono-ski, SUP, kite, snowboard, ski … or if conditions are lacking chill at secret beach. And when the sun goes down: party!

5/5 Never a dull moment.

What could a guy do to impress you?

Be a super-modest but super-talented windsurfer. With a cheeky smile. And killer eyes.

4/5 Oh. That’s us out then, immodest grumpy muppets that we are… Sounds just like a certain Quatro / Goya rider we know though!

What do you like about being in a male dominated sport?

The on-water eye candy and fun fearless females who make great friends.

4/5 We kinda like them too…

Does a windsurfer make a good boyfriend?

Yup – I’ll never date a non-windsurfer again. Windsurfers are hardcore, passionate and good in … the water!

5/5 BINGO.

What is your most memorable achievement to date?

Starting up Boylo’s! It’s been the toughest thing I’ve ever done but the hard work and long hours are paying off. I work hard to play hard and love every day.

4/5 OK. It may be true, but that plugging’s verging on shameless now!

What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?

A tandem sky-dive over the Great Barrier Reef in Oz, strapped to a big biker bloke with a peg-leg! The landing was an adrenaline rush for all the wrong reasons…

4/5 We’d recommend jumping with a parachutist next time…

Are wetsuits sexy?

Yes! If it’s a good fit. I recommend Xcel.

4/5 Correct answer, although other brands are available…

What is more important: a solid bank account or a solid six pack?

Money doesn’t guarantee happiness, solid bodies on the other hand…

4/5 …also don’t guarantee happiness, but can make life more fun.

Finally, you tell your boyfriend you are going sailing for a quick hour. You come back 4 hours later. What do you say to him?

Lyme was kicking off! How was it for you? What’s that? You’re aching? I’ll massage yours if you massage mine!

5/5 That’s one lucky man!

In case you hadn’t noticed, Ellie runs Boylo’s near Lyme Regis in Devon – check it out at… in fact, even better, why not pop in and see her?
