Spotted: 25 celebrities doing watersports
Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio showed off her athletic prowess on a stand-up paddleboard while on vacation in her home country in January 2018. Alongside the paddleboard, Ambrosio was also spotted on board a luxury yacht with fellow models Ludi Delfino, Aline e Duda Deboni and Gisele Coria.
Ambrosio is known to be something of a paddleboard pro taking the sport one step further while on vacation in Bora Bora in August 2017 by teaching her daughter Anja a few yoga skills while enjoying some mother-daughter time on the waves . The family also took a boat trip and swam with manta rays and shark while on holiday.
Hailey Baldwin, model and daughter of actor Alec Baldwin, demonstrated the adventurous possibilities of watersports when she shared these images of a paddleboarding trip during in August 2017. Baldwin used her stand-up paddleboard to explore narrow passageways and caves that are unreachable by boat and, although the model did not disclose her location, she has recently been spotted in the Bahamas for those wishing to follow in her footsteps.
Lottie Moss, the model sister of fashion icon Kate Moss, shared this snap of herself using a Jet Ski as the perfect prop for a photo opportunity during a vacation in Mykonos in July 2017. Moss has been spotted in a number of Mediterranean yachting hotspots this summer, including on board a luxury yacht in Ibiza, as well as in Marbella, Venice and Kefalonia.
British pop star Perrie Edwards partook in an unusual water sport during an exotic vacation with her boyfriend, footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, in June 2017. The Little Mix band member opted for a spot of horse riding and, instead of sticking to the sandy beaches, took her steed in to the balmy waters of her undisclosed tropical destination resulting in some envy-inducing social media snaps.
As one of the world's top Formula One drivers, it perhaps comes as no surprise that Lewis Hamilton displays equal prowess in the seat of a Jet Ski. While taking some time off on board Alfa Nero after the Monaco Grand Prix 2017, Hamilton was spotted showing off his skills with a number of tricks and daredevil stunts on one of the yacht's many water toys.
Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin
Model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner and fellow famous friend Hailey Baldwin shared these images of themselves riding the waves on board Jet Skis in an undisclosed location in May 2017. The pair were spotted relaxing on board a luxury yacht with model Bella Hadid with the trio all taking time off after attending the famous Met Ball in New York earlier in the month.
This is not the girls' first foray into ocean-based thrill seeking. Jenner shared a picture of herself and Baldwin riding horses in the sea in August 2016. While horse riding is not what usually springs to mind when one thinks of ‘watersports’, it is a great way to make the most of some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. The celebrity pair were on a superyacht vacation in Turks and Caicos for Kendall’s younger sister Kylie’s 19th birthday celebrations. Other famous friends joining them included models Jordyn Woods, Bella Hadid, singer Justine Skye and Kylie's boyfriend Tyga.
Model and daughter of Lionel Richie, Sofia Richie, demonstrated an interesting Jet Ski driving technique when she posted this photo to social media in April 2017. Richie shared the snap while on vacation in Qatar where she also tried out a number of other high octane pursuits including quad biking and pony trekking in the desert.
American actress Lea Michele has been spending some time relaxing in Hawaii with friends at the end of February 2017, where she took part in a paddleboard yoga session. The former Glee and Scream Queens star has been posting pictures on Instagram with her friends relaxing on the beach, enjoying cocktails, frolicking in the ocean and showing off more yoga skills in an infinity pool.
Karlie Kloss, a supermodel famous for her love of sports, ticked off one of her bucket list experiences in February 2017 when she went snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. The American model posted numerous images of herself both above and below the waves at the UNESCO World Heritage site famous for its abundance of wildlife. Kloss was also spotted showing off her wakeboarding prowess in the Caribbean in January 2017. Kloss tried her hand at the popular beach sport during a New Year's vacation in St Barts where she was joined by fellow famous friend Derek Blasberg on board a luxury yacht for the festivities.
Tallia Storm was another celebrity spotted on a superyacht vacation in the Caribbean for New Year's Eve 2016. The Scottish singer/songwriter headed to Barbados with her family and made the most of her time on the small island by zipping around its coastline - and taking in all the neighbouring yachts - in style on a Jet Ski.
