Activewear designer Laura May Gibbs quietly split from actor Simon Baker several months ago, following a whirlwind romance that started in February.

But the Nagnata founder showed no sign of heartache on Monday as she prepared to go for a surf with her model mate Jessica Vander Leahy in Byron Bay.

The 36-year-old couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she slipped into a wetsuit in a beachside car park while getting ready for an afternoon of catching waves.

Laura went makeup free for the outing and styled her blonde hair loosely.

Before getting into her wetsuit, the businesswomen showcased her legs in a pair of burgundy shorts and a baggy white T-shirt.

She appeared to be having a great time with her pal Jessica, who looked stylish in a pair of pink shorts and a brown patterned swimsuit.

The pair giggled next to their car as Jessica helped Laura fasten her wetsuit.

The two women then lifted their surfboards under their arms and made their way down to the beach.

The outing comes after Laura first spoke publicly about her split from Simon.

She categorically denied rumours the actor, 52, broke up with her because she had attended an anti-vaccine mandate protest.

Laura slammed this ‘false narrative’ about their split in a lengthy Instagram post earlier this month, declaring it was ‘simply not true’.

Laura insisted their split was amicable, writing: ‘I never discuss my private life, but I will say this – the friendship and respect I share with [Simon] runs too deep for the media’s noise to have any true impact in our lives.’

She also defended her decision to protest against vaccine mandates at the NSW-Queensland border at the start of November.

The demonstration was part of a series of rallies across the country against mandatory Covid jabs for certain industries and occupations.

‘I care about these people. I care about my staff and community, without division or prejudice,’ she wrote.

‘Regardless of our differences we are moving through this time together. The decisions being made by those in power effect all of us, including our children and their future freedoms.’

Laura said she’d long been an advocate for ‘freedom of speech and choice’ – even before vaccine mandates were put in place.

She wrote: ‘I won’t apologise for voicing my concerns, when I see so many struggling, losing their livelihoods and being silenced, shamed and ridiculed for wanting to ask questions.’

‘Activism is important to me, I’ve attended numerous environmental rallies and Indigenous rights protests, and taken action in all of these areas. If the media is going to cover issues I make a stand on, then report the full scope of the matter – and while you’re at it, lead with my name,’ she added.

Her post came a week after Simon’s spokesperson confirmed he and Laura had quietly parted ways several months ago.

The reason for their split has not been made public.

The couple were last pictured together in August, laughing and joking during a trip to the beach in Byron Bay.

Simon and Laura first sparked romance rumours in February after they were pictured frolicking in the surf together in Byron Bay.

The pair are said to have met in Byron, where Laura’s sustainable fashion design studio is based near his farm in Nashua.
