Avril Lavigne: the next world surfing champion

Avril Lavigne, the Canadian pop starlet, has been enjoying the waves of Sydney's most crowded beaches.

The singer was spotted surfing in a break from the promotion of her new album. "I think I'm having more fun in a lot of ways", said Lavigne.

Avril had the opportunity to learn surfing tips from a surf school located in Manly. Although this is not the first time she hits the waves, Lavigne showed some talent and style.

"Do you need to be zipped up", asks a smart boy. Lavigne accepted the helping hand and then entered the agitated waters of the Australian beach.

"Goodbye Lullaby" is the fourth studio album by the Canadian singer-songwriter. Avril Lavigne enjoys athletic activities, including yoga, street hockey, soccer, rollerblading and surfing.
