8 Stars Who Love to Channel Their Inner Surfer Girl
If you’ve seen Blue Crush, you already know there’s nothing cooler than a surfer girl. And while we can all channel those effortless beach vibes with our salt sprays and shimmery bronzers, there is a little-known circle of Hollywood elite that actually hang ten on the regular.
Among them and a handful of supermodels, like Gisele Bündchen, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Carolyn Murphy, who told InStyle earlier this summer that being on the board is indeed her happy place. “The ocean is so meditative,” said Murphy (below), who has surfed competitively since the age of 9 while growing up in Florida.
Actresses have been riding the waves too, like Oscar nominee Margot Robbie, who hopped on a board in Costa Rica just last month, and Cameron Diaz, who has been perfecting the art of the rock-hard surf bod since her Charlie’s Angels days. Diaz has said that the beach is one of her favorite ways to spend the lazy days of summer. “I know I’ve been in the sun too long when I’ve lost track of time,” she told us in 2014.
While Murphy’s go-to surf spot is Montauk, N.Y., Diaz is often seen on her board in Malibu, where the sunny surf season doesn’t end after Labor Day. Many year-round resorts in the area even offer packages geared toward every kind of surfer girl well into the fall.
Our favorite? The Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica, where in addition to a picturesque beachside stay, guests can opt into the Miramar to Malibu experience, which includes surf lessons for two from the beloved Malibu Surf Shack, a picnic lunch from Fig Restaurant, and a chic rash guard from Vilebrequin.
Any surfer girl would approve — just make sure you don’t steal Diaz’s swell when you’re out there. Keep scrolling to get inspired by our favorite star surfers.
