Guess he wasn’t Bourne for it! Matt Damon takes a tumble on his surfboard while riding some waves in Byron Bay

Matt Damon is currently enjoying a summer holiday with his family in Australia’s Byron Bay. 

And on Thursday, the Hollywood A-lister made the most of his free time by going surfing at a local beach.

Unfortunately, Matt didn’t appear to be as skilled on his surf board as he is on screen, with the 48-year-old taking a massive tumble into the ocean.

Not to be deterred, The Legend of Bagger Vance star quickly climbed back on his board and continued to surf the rough seas.  

After surfing, the actor was spotted walking along the sand with wife Luciana Barroso, 43, and their daughters Isabella, 12 and Gia Zavala, 10.

The Damon clan have been staying near Chris Hemsworth’s family in the coastal town, as Matt and Chris are close friends. 

Oh no!  Unfortunately, Matt didn't appear to be as skilled on his surf board as he is on screen, with the 48-year-old taking a massive tumble into the ocean

It’s not the first time that the Damons spent time Down Under either.

Last year, Matt and his family rented a $4 million Byron Bay home for four months.

Despite reports Matt was keen to purchase his own property in the area, the Hollywood star began the new year by snapping up an expensive Brooklyn apartment.

It was reported last month by the New York Times that Matt had bought the property for US$16.7million (AUD$23.7million).

Matt’s purchase follows rumours last year that he was preparing to relocate with his family to Australia after numerous visits.

Page Six claimed his move Down Under would ‘not impact his work’ as he was prepared to ‘travel to wherever his projects are shooting’.

However, a representative denied these claims at the time.
