StabMZ reporting: All’s not right in the world, but Chris Hemsworth getting barreled is today’s news you didn’t need but clicked on anyway! Plus, we can use a break from the US’s recent airstrike on Syria and pondering if finals day will run at the Box.

Maybe it’s our rage for authenticity, but we’re fools for celebrities who perpetuate surf and can actually work the foam beneath their feet. This beloved past time, for the rich and famous, is a natural process as they tend to inhabit coastal regions. But, the traditional photo galleries or Instagram posts of celebs surfing are cringe-worthy. Like Adam Sandler in trunks and booties, Jason Mraz wearing a fedora in the water, Matt McConaughey with two hands raised, throwing a shaka and L-I-V-I-N (but McConaughey gets a pass, he can do no wrong in my eyes. That’s including the Lincoln advertisements and the period of lowbrow movies during the noughties; I can’t hate on a man for doing shit films based on his pretty face to fund his slacker lifestyle).

Chris sliding through the tropical oasis of Fiji’s notorious left-hander.

Chris, however, we’ve seen on a trip to Cloudbreak with Kelly Slater, manning the helm of an overhead Fijian dream boat. This wave posted to Thor’s Instagram shows his self-proclaimed longest barrel in the world, which–for those ready to refute any such claim at first glance–is blatantly sarcastic. Serving as proof that he’s one of the few stars who are both sickeningly handsome and can hold their own in the brine. Also how are the water and land angles that go down during a session with Chris?
