Cameron Diaz & Kelly Slater: Surfing Buddies
Diaz spends time in Hawaii with an old pal: surfing champ Kelly Slater
After her post-Golden Globes spat with ex Justin Timberlake, Cameron Diaz headed to Hawaii for some quality time in the sun and surf – and champion surfer Kelly Slater was on hand to keep her company.
Slater cleared his schedule to meet up with Diaz when she arrived in Oahu on Tuesday, sources said, and the pair have since been spotted at various spots along the islands’s North Shore.
They shared a sunset dinner Wednesday night at the renowned Haleiwa Joe’s, sources said, and also stocked up on provisions at a local grocery store Friday night. “She was with him. They were just shopping,” said a witness.
And, of course, they spent plenty of time outdoors, playing a round of golf at the Turtle Bay Resort, according to a source, and hitting the beach. “Someone saw Kelly with a really hot girl in his car and we looked and it was her,” said one observer. Added another, “They were just cruising around.”
Diaz also took some time to be on her own. She was reportedly seen shopping over the weekend at Ala Moana Center in Honolulu, a few miles from tourist-heavy Waikiki.
Diaz and Slater, both 34, are old friends: He joined her on a 2005 conservation expedition to Honduras for her MTV show Trippin’.
An eight-time world champion surfer who acted on the first season of Baywatch and has been linked to Pamela Anderson and Giselle Bundchen, Slater calls his native Florida home but has a house on the North Shore.
“He’s a nice guy. He’s very, very focused, which is what makes him such a good surfer,” says Hawaii-based surfing photographer Carol Cunningham.
Could romance be brewing? Reps for both Diaz and Slater could not be reached for comment, but one thing is for certain: the pair share a great love – for the waves.
