Full Name:   Denise Briggs
Age:   26yrs
Height:   5’2″
Eye Colour:   Greeny blue

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.

4/5 Interesting…

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

Big thanks to Hannah Durston for the photos.


What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?

Stole a yacht with some friends when we were hammered in the middle of the night and went round to a neighboring bay. Had an awesome time and then put it back safe and sound in the morning. No-one ever knew – I think…

4/5Dangerous is sexy, but… minus a point for being naughty.

Are wetsuits sexy?

Depends who’s wearing it


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

Well a solid back account can come later, we can work on that six pack for now!


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?

That was siiick!!! Did you see me land my spock? (Well, hopefully…) Let’s eat!
