Supermodel Elle Macpherson may be 44 with two kids, but she showed she still has what made her famous when she was snapped surfing in Australia during the past week. She reportedly spent this year solo while her sons had Christmas with their father Arki Busson and his new fiancee Uma Thurman. The pair were engaged in June.

The Australian Telegraph wrote of her surf skills:

Dressed in a wetsuit top, bikini bottoms and trademark cowboy hat, she showed plenty of raw talent.

Miller, who was crowned US surfing champion in 1965, said Macpherson appeared at ease in the water.

"She's a real natural. She's familiar and comfortable in the water,'' Miller has told The Sunday Telegraph.

"We had a few sessions together last year, and this time Elle picked up where she left off. She didn't miss a beat.''

Macpherson is in her native Australia while her kids are with their dad, Macpherson's ex-fiance:

Her boys, Flynn, 10, and Aurelius Cy, 5, spent the festive season with their father, Arpad Busson, and his new fiancee, actress Uma Thurman.
