Celebrities, they’re just like us! Isn’t that what they say? The thing is that celebrities aren’t really just like us. They may do the same things we do on a daily basis, but they do it under a giant magnifying glass. 

The whole world gets to see what they’re up to, the good and the bad. Which is why celebrities make such effective ambassadors; you want to get people interested in the world’s most pressing issues? Get Angelina Jolie to be your spokesperson and everyone will listen. Want to sell a luxury watch? Sign Benedict Cumberbatch up and sales will likely to skyrocket.

This seems to be true when it comes to our favorite sport, surfing, too! Seeing celebrities surfing serves as a wonderful inspiration to get ourselves out and hit the waves, which is why we’ve decided to share an awesome list of 10 popular celebrities who surf:


Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey has always been a buff and handsome dude. He even said that he tries to break a sweat each day, which is fantastic advice. But did you now that this Hollywood A-lister also loves to surf? Though he’s a born and bred Texan, he truly embraces ‘California living’ on a regular basis and even starred in a surf movie, Surfer, Dude (2008).


Kate Hudson

Just like Matthew, his on-screen partner in the movie ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’, Kate loves to work out! To stay in great shape, she alternates between Pilates, Yoga, weight training, and quite a bit of hiking. But whenever she finds herself on a beach somewhere, she loves to do a bit of Stand Up Paddling (SUP).


Olivia Wilde

Another celebrity who seems to love SUP is one of the stars of the hit show ‘House’, the lovely Olivia Wilde. She has been spotted with her board on the surface of the water repeatedly and we have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of her and her paddle this year!


Anthony Kiedis

The world’s highest-earning supermodel, Gisele Bundchen, loves working out and being outdoors so much that it would have been a shock if she didn’t love surfing. We must say, this Brazilian it girl appears to be quite a good surfer. But then again, this beautiful wife of Football superstar, Tom Brady, seems to be pretty awesome in everything she does! 


Helen Hunt

One wouldn’t say Helen Hunt fits the mold of the typical surfer girl, but then again, there really isn’t a typical surfer. There are just people who love to surf. And Helen loves surfing so much, she starred in the movie Ride (2014), about a business woman taking up surfing in her 50’s. We can vouch that it’s never too late to learn to surf!


Orlando Bloom
