Leinster out-half Jimmy Gopperth is absolutely shredding the waves on his holidays

Shredding. Is that the right word, brah?

WHILE MANY OF his team-mates are still slogging away at international, ‘Emerging’ or under 20 level, Jimmy Gopperth has his feet up (on a surfboard).

The Kiwi tweeted this image of the view from his accommodation in Mentawai Islands in Indonesia.

But Gopperth isn’t happy until he has his feet wet and, fortunately for us, he had a camera mounted on his board to show just how well his holliers were going.

He’s not one to hog the glory, though, here he points the camera at another surfer while making some sort of primal roar of approval.

Sports you should definitely try this summer… surfing
