Simon Skelton

Age – 42

Skills – Surfer, Musician, Model and Yachtmaster

Sponsors – Gulfstream, Snugg, Lokbox, Harris tweed, Lashenal concertinas

Biography – Although born in Cornwall, Skelly and his beloved dog “Bear” have chosen North Devon as home. When not imparting words of wisdom to prospective board buyers at Gulfstream, or playing his concertina while he should be imparting words of wisdom to prospective board buyers at Gulfstream, he can be found lurking around the line up on one of his 60+ classic surfboards.

A die hard traditionalist in every sense, from a strange fixation with old crafts, floating and other, to owning a mobile phone that has never been taken out of its box.

Although Skelly was employed by Saltrock surfwear to model on a nationwide campaign to launch the Spring/Summer 2011 range that is currently enjoying massive visibility, his solid character and extremely honest salesmanship might fit in better with a company or project looking for an ambassador that requires more than just good looks and an ability to ride waves well.
