For some reason, celebrities are drawn to surfing like moths to a flame. There’s a holistic good to surfing that celebs, or at least their agents, want us to associate with them.
And of course, the chance to get snapped looking fresh in a bikini or board shorts by some scum bag paparazzi is always a bonus when they have a calendar to flog to lonely, sexually frustrated teens.
You might be surprised by some of the celebrities who surf, so Mpora has rounded up 12 celebrities that you’ll be shocked don’t surf.
1) Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts is one of the most powerful people in Hollywood, and has a reported worth of $170million (£111million) so she can afford the odd beach holiday.
Despite this, she has little-to-no interest in surfing.
2) Matt Bellamy
Matt Bellamy is a multi-instrumentalist sadly best known for being front man from prog rock cum-socks Muse. Bellamy grew up in Teignmouth, Devon which is just a quick drive from some some of the UK’s hottest surf spots.
Despite this, Bellers spent his formative years practicing scales on his guitar and now fronts one of the worlds most successful, not to mention shittest bands.
