Austin Nichols hangs loose while attending the Surfrider Foundation‘s 5th Annual Celebrity Expression Session last weekend in Malibu, Calif.
The 30-year-old One Tree Hill star later swapped his casual clothes for a wetsuit before jumping into the water to show off his surf skills.
The event was hosted by Christina Applegate and her fiancee Martyn Lenoble and raises awareness and funds each year for the non-profit organization, which aims to protect the beaches.
Next up for Austin: Marrying girlfriend Sophia Bush…on the small screen! Their One Tree Hill characters, Brooke and Julian, are getting married, according to E! News.
“I don’t know that [Brook having a child] is a direction that we’ll go, but never say never,” says creator Mark Schwahn. “Ultimately I do root for Brooke’s happiness and [right now] Julian is a big part of that.”
