Gisele kicked off the summer heat this past weekend in the company of her children, Benjamin and Vivian Lake, along with Vivian’s friend. According to Page Six, the family decided to charter a speedboat for an afternoon of fun. They set off onto the water in Miami, Florida, equipped with wakeboards and a massive alligator floatie. Before handing over the lead cable to her children, Bündchen gave them a demonstration of proper form. As the children enjoyed wakeboarding and splashing around in the water, Gisele was seen capturing these beautiful and proud moments with her phone.

During their hangout, Gisele herself exhibited exceptional skill as she effortlessly navigated the wake created by the boat, all while Benjamin captured the moment on his phone. However, a few moments later, Gisele experienced a tumble off the board, which she found amusing and laughed heartily. Undeterred, she took a moment to relax and float in the water before eventually paddling back to the boat. This fun-filled excursion allowed Gisele to enjoy quality time with her children and impart her surfing expertise to them. Interestingly, despite it being Gisele’s return to the Miami beaches with her kids after a long time, it is worth mentioning that she was once romantically involved with renowned American surfer, Kelly Slater.
