As the world now knows, Robert Pattinson did not accompany his lady-love Kristen Stewart to the Kids' Choice Awards. While no one knows exactly why Rob was a no-show, it may have been because he was too tired after his strenuous weekend of shirtless surfing and paddleboarding in Malibu. And speaking of Kristen Stewart, if it's true that the Snow White and the Huntsman star was happy to see her man taking paddleboarding lessons, she'll be ecstatic when she sees that someone preserved his first lessons for posterity on video. Could that mystery videographer have been KStew herself?
On March 30, the Breaking Dawn heart-throb hit the beach at Malibu armed with his trusty board and, much like his buff Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner, without his shirt. As you can see on the video below, RPattz was "looking fantastic as he worked out and played around on the board." He sported a pair of black or dark blue shorts and nothing else--except of course, a "scruffy beard to go along with the muscular physique."
Muscular might be a bit of an exaggeration, but Rob looked very good indeed. He also seemed to be getting the hang of paddleboarding and surfing. Perhaps, he'll demonstrate his new-found expertise in a film someday. Til then, you can see Robert Pattinson in action on the video clip below.
Note: As it turns out, KStew didn't film the video. The people at Pop Sugar did it with their trusty "zoom feature."
