44-year old Columbian, Shakira, singer of the Quadruple platinum hit, ‘Hips don’t lie’ won’t get out of the Basque WaveGarden. 

Shakira picked up surfing two years ago and has since taken a real liking to the sport, even shooting her latest video clip ‘Don’t wait up’ at the Spanish wave pool.

Last Sunday, she booked out the pool for just herself and her sons who are reportedly “really starting to enjoy [surfing]”.

She even posted a video of her knifing one all the way to the silica shoreline on her 6’6 La Côte model by Axel Lorenz while her song played in the background.

‘I’m back at Wave Garden trying to improve my skills in this cruel sport with Barbie’s board,’ she giggled in an interview with the Daily Mail.

Between herself and her husband, Gerard Pique, FC Barcelona center-back, the gene pool is primed for greatness for children, Sasha (6 years old) and Milan (8 years old).

Could Shakira be a surf mom at Stab High 2024?
