Fun in the sun! Byron Baes star Elias Chigros enjoys a day at the beach and gives a surfing lesson to a stunning pal


He’s the former Love Island contestant who is about to star on Netflix’s controversial new reality TV show, Byron Baes. 

And on Wednesday, Elias Chigros was spotted showing off his bulging biceps in the star-studded coastal town of Byron Bay, as he enjoyed time at the beach. 

The 30-year-old hunk stepped out at Broken Head, in a tight black rash shirt as he helped a female friend learn how to surf.

The reality TV star appeared to be very hands-on with his approach, guiding his friend as she fixed her posture on the surf board. 

Later, he was even seen zipping her all-black bodysuit for her too.   

In between giggles, the hunk was seen showing the blonde beauty how to squat and use her core while surfing. 

Eventually, the pair appeared to be all smiles as they paddled out into the sea together, with Elias helping the beauty from behind the board.

Elias is set to appear on the upcoming Netflix reality show Byron Baes.

Other cast members include The Bachelorette’s Nathan Favro, Kyle Sandilands’ former assistant-turned-manager Alex Reid, and singer-songwriter Sarah St James.

The cast of Byron Baes have done little to endear themselves to the Byron community, with locals furious about the production of the show.

Earlier this year, a handful of Byron locals paddled out into the ocean to protest the show, while others stood by with placards that read ‘give Netflix the flick’ and ‘consult traditional owners’.

Ben Gordon, owner of The Byron Bay General Store, led calls to snub production and asked other local businesses to do the same.

‘They’ve simply turned up unannounced and they are proposing to drag our name through the mud, and make millions of dollars without offering anything back to the community,’ he told Today.

Nick O’Donnell, Netflix’s director of public policy, was even forced to travel to the NSW coastal town ‘for crisis talks with stakeholders’ amid growing backlash.
