Emma Stone says surfing gives her one of the ''greatest feelings'' ever.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' actress has been working on an untitled Cameron Crowe-directed romantic comedy opposite Bradley Cooper in Hawaii, and during their spare time they took to the waves and learnt how to surf.

Although she joked about her abilities on the water, the 25-year-old beauty admits she found taking to the waves an ''amazing'' experience.

Asked during a TV interview whether she ''gave it a try'', Emma replied: ''I gave it a shot. I was amazing. I was an incredible surfer.

''I also think it's the greatest feeling you can ever have. You're floating on the water. You really are.''

However, she then giggled and added: ''Unless you're not.''

Earlier in the year, Emma was seen hitting the waves with her boyfriend and 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' co-star Andrew Garfield.

The couple are believed to have taken lessons from Hawaiian surf legend Rory Russell.

The 'Gangster Squad' actress recently admitted filming 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' left her covered in bruises from the harness equipment used for flying scenes.

She said: ''There's a lot of harnesses. [Stunt double] Jen Caputo would come into my trailer and just gear me up and it would have to be tighter than you can possibly imagine already. Then, they hoist you and there's a lot of bruising.''
