Supermodel Christie Brinkley has found a way to unwind after her high-drama divorce trial - surfing.
The recently-divorced beauty has taken up the hobby while vacationing in Long Island, New York after ending her marriage to ex-husband Peter Cook just last month (10Jul08).
And the 54-year-old insists hitting the waves has helped her to relax and remember her roots, reports the New York Daily News.
She says, "Yes, I've dusted off my surfboard. When I was 13, I was a surfer girl in Malibu, putting my phonograph needle over and over on the old Beach Boys songs.
"My kids and I love it out on the water. We get away from the crowds by kayaking out to explore the inlets and coves, and we've tried the new rage of standup paddling on the surfboard. This summer I want to just slow everything down."
