I Wanna Join Kelly Slater And Chris Hemsworth’s Surf Gang!

StabMZ reporting: Stars do align! Is there a more glamorous surf gang than 200x World Champ Kelly Slater and Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth? Likely not. Chris once told Vanity Fair that he idolised KS growing up, which he isn’t alone in, but unlike the rest of us, he now gets to go on surf trips with Kelly.

The two flew into Nadi International together just prior to the swell that lit up Fiji last week, before boating out to Tavarua and, by all accounts, scoring. A celeb surfing Cloudbreak? Yes. It must be noted at this juncture that unlike most Hollywood stars who “surf”… Chris can actually surf. How about the breeziness with which he’s taking on Fiji’s most deadly above?

The two gents later shared a sesh in Chris’ home town, Byron Bay, on Monday, after returning from Tavi. Chris’ younger bro, Liam, even sat on the rocks firing off some iPhone shots during the session. Kelly evidently checked out Chris’ pad, too; an Instagram post from the same day showed the champ gripping the Hammer of Thor (no innuendo). “#ThorsActualHammer. Stole it. Straight on eBay.”

@kellyslater and the Hammer of Thor. You know that scene in Age Of Ultron where all the Avengers are trying to lift the hammer and can’t?

Also… John John Florence played Thor in this Samsung commercial. Chris Hemsworth plays Thor in the Marvel Universe. Chris is pals with Kelly Slater. #Illuminati
