Lewis Hamilton continues to enjoy the Formula One off-season and has been riding the waves with professional surfer Kai Lenny.
The reigning world champion has been spending time on the west coast of America as he continues to relax after another victorious season.
After surfing with 11-time world champion Kelly Slater earlier this month, it seems Hamilton has a penchant for the sport and posted pictures on Instagram of him in the ocean again on Sunday night.

The F1 world champion hit the ocean with professional stars Kai Lenny and Kelly Slater
Hamilton was picture riding a wave alongside Slater once again as well as another professional surfer in Lenny.
He wrote alongside the pictures: ‘Broadening horizons. Surfing is my fave sport! Being taught by Kelly and Kai.’
With the new Formula One season not beginning until March 17 in Australia, Hamilton – who turned 34 on January 7 – still has plenty more time to hit the water and hone his skills.
Hamilton has been using his off-season to spend time with friends and family but with the season now just over seven weeks away, he is locked into a strict fitness programme.

With winter biting the United Kingdom, it is no surprise Hamilton has opted for sunnier climes as he works on his new exercises on the west coast of America.
It has not been all work and no play while in America, though, after taking the chance to mix with some of music’s biggest names.
Hamilton went to watch NFL franchise the Los Angeles Rams, who will compete in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots on Sunday night, with rappers YG and Post Malone.
