When he’s not on set, Chris Hemsworth, the absurdly muscled Australian actor best known for playing the Norse god Thor in the Marvel movies, likes to surf. In fact, he’s kind of a surfing fanatic.
And so, he recently made his way down to Brazil, where he sampled the goods at what many are calling “the best wavepool in the world,” Boa Vista; check it out below:
Per PerfectSwell, the technology from American Wave Machines that powers the pool at Boa Vista, they captioned the highlight reel of Thor throwing hammers:
“If you didn’t know already, now you do, @chrishemsworth rips. During a recent visit @boavistavillage, the Australian native and prolific actor sampled several wave types, laying down hammers across the board.”
Hemsworth’s take on Boa Vista Village: “It’s probably the best wavepool on the planet.”
Surf commentator Selema Masekela commented: “Thor is a damn weapon.”
It’s not Hemsworth’s first visit to a wavepool; like hordes of pro surfers, he recently traveled to the Middle East and sampled the much-coveted, much-hyped, Kelly Slater-powered Surf Abu Dhabi. He also hit Wavegarden’s Alaia Bay in the Swiss Alps.
