Lara Bingle returns to Byron Bay after being smitten by surfer Dion Agius

London: Lara Bingle has gone back to Byron Bay for another week just days after returning from the holiday haven.

The former fiancee of Australian cricketer Michael Clarke is said to be smitten by professional surfer Dion Agius, who is based in Byron Bay.

Apparently, a summer romance blossomed between Byron Bay-based Agius and the 24-year-old on her first visit over New Year’s Eve, with the Tasmanian-born surfer staying at Bingle’s holiday house in the Byron hinterland with her friends Matt Corby, Nathan Jolliffe and Max May, the Telegraph reported.

“Nathan Jolliffe introduced them to each other when she first came up to Byron ... and he taught her how to surf,” a friend of Agius’ said.

Agius is now planning to visit the model in Sydney before summer is over.

“They both aren’t really the dating types, so they are just taking it slow,” the source added.
