Orlando Bloom heads to the beach in his vintage Ford truck and enjoys a ride on ...

In 2016, Orlando Bloom caused shockwaves around the showbiz world when he was pictured enjoying a naked paddleboarding session with now-fiancée Katy Perry. 

Yet fast-forward four years and it seems the new dad, 42, who welcomed his first child with Katy, 35, last month, has become more bashful. 

The star took a break from dad duty on Monday as he headed to the beach with some pals in Santa Barbara while sporting a very covered up ensemble for a session on his fancy E-surfboard which markets for between $10,000 and $15,000.

During his venture into the ocean, Orlando, with hydrofoil E-board in hand, eagerly headed into the salt water to take his toy for a test drive.

He kept comfy in a plain white tee shirt and a pair of black board shorts that featured a yin and yang symbol on one leg.  

Orlando retrieved an American flag beach towel, a white rash guard, and his expensive surfboard from his truck before making his way to the water. 

His surf outing comes just days after Katy was granted a restraining order against her alleged stalker William Terry.

William is believed to be homeless and living in a silver Buick sedan, as he's recently been harassing Katy and her family.
