Chris Hemsworth puts his muscles on display in skintight rash vest while surfing in Byron Bay

He is known for his superhero physique.

And Chris Hemsworth put his muscles and abs on display as he hit the beach for a solo surfing session in Byron Bay, NSW.

The Hollywood actor, 39, showed off his muscular frame in a skintight rash vest as he caught some waves on last month. 

Chris also wore black board shorts as he enjoyed a dip in the ocean after he rode the crashing waves.

The Thor star then carried his surfboard out of the water and walked to his car.

Chris lives in a $30million mansion in Broken Head, near Byron Bay, with his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children after relocating from Los Angeles to Australia seven years ago.

Last year, Chris said he is building the life he always dreamed of, far from the bright lights of Hollywood.

‘My focus ever since I had any sway was to shoot here in Australia due to, on a personal level, being at home with my family, but also because of the awareness that I had about what was possible here when it comes to the talent,’ the actor told The Daily Telegraph.

‘Life is sweet. It is great and I couldn’t be happier,’ Chris added. ‘If you had have said or asked me 10 years ago where I would like to be, this is it.’

The A-lister stays in phenomenal shape by sticking to a strict workout regime and maintaining a high-calorie diet.

Chris kicks it into high gear before a film, as his longtime stunt double, Bobby Holland Hanton, 37, recently attested to his intense physical preparation prior to taking on a role.

Chris pushed Bobby to the limit on the last film in the Thor franchise, giving his stunt double just eight weeks to bulk up for Thor: Love and Thunder.

In a recent interview with Ice36, Hanton described the gruelling demands placed upon him, saying he told the star, ‘You’ve got to be kidding!’

Bobby had to pack on nearly 22 pounds of muscle and consume 4000 calories a day so he would transform into a convincing Thor.

‘I was eating up to 10 meals a day, two of those would be protein shakes,’ Bobby shared with Ice 36. ‘We [he and Chris] were training twice a day and I never thought in my life that I would be sick of food and not wanting to eat food, because I love food.’

But the film industry veteran, who has worked with the Aussie-born superstar for 15 years, says the training regime was a real test.

‘I hated it,’ he said. ‘In the end, I was trying to give away food that I was supposed to eat because I just didn’t want to eat it, it would almost make you feel sick because you were never, ever hungry.’
