Shakira couldn’t help but smile while she sat on her surfboard and chatted with friends and a hunky mystery man between surfing the waves.
The outing comes after the Whenever, Wherever artist split with Gerard Piqué, 35, as they revealed they separated last week.
The former pair – who are parents to sons Milan, nine, and Sasha, seven – released a joint statement in which they said: ‘We regret to confirm that we are separating.
‘We ask for privacy at this moment for the well-being of our children, who are our maximum priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect.’

The Grammy winner and the athlete initially emerged publicly as a couple in 2011.
The announcement comes amid rumors in the Spanish tabloids that the couple were on the verge of breaking up with sources claiming he had cheated on the star.
Spanish outlet El Periodico reported that the couple have been living separately for a few weeks after Piqué was kicked out of the family home by the pop star.
According to sources, Piqué has since been living a ‘party lifestyle’ in a bachelor pad and enjoying nights out with his teammates.

Neither party has addressed cheating claims but journalist Emilio Pérez reported: ‘(Shakira) has made the decision to separate. That is so. It has happened.
‘That is why there is distance. Perhaps there is nothing left, but that (infidelity) has passed.’
Representatives did not respond when contacted by MailOnline for comment.
The former power couple were hit by split claims in 2017, with it being claimed that the two were no longer living together and Shakira had instigated the split.
It followed weeks of speculation about the pair’s relationship status in the Colombian press, with a source claiming she ‘could no longer cope with the situation.’

‘It’s something serious and she has been the one who has finally made the decision,’ they told Spanish website Cotilleo.
The She Wolf songstress hinted at disharmony between the pair in her latest hit Te Felicito with Rauw Alejandro, in which she sings: ‘To complete you I broke into pieces; I was warned, but I didn’t listen; I realized that yours is false…
‘It was the drop that overflowed the glass; Don’t tell me you’re sorry, that sounds sincere, but I know you well and I know you’re lying.’
The couple had been together since 2011, with the pair having met while filming the music video for her World Cup song Waka Waka the previous year.

Piqué’s team happened to win the World Cup that year, where his soon-to-be girlfriend performed during the final game.
Though the two corresponded in 2010, the relationship between the two mega-stars wouldn’t officially take off until the start of 2011.
In the fall of 2012, Shakira would use her Instagram platform to announce to fans that she was pregnant with the football star’s son.
Just two years after the birth of son Milan, the couple revealed they would be expecting their second child, Sasha, who was born in 2015.
The couple have admitted publicly that they have no plans to wed, but that hasn’t stopped them from having a family life.

Speaking to Gary Neville on a recent episode of The Overlap, the Spain international explained that he hadn’t proposed because their relationship ‘works fine as it is.’
‘I like it how we are right now. We have two kids, nine and seven, we work good as a couple. We don’t have the need to be married, it’s fine,’ said Piqué.
After Gerard made his 600th appearance for Barcelona in March, Shakira marked the landmark with a heartfelt post on social media.
Back in March, the Barcelona FC defender risked the wrath of his partner by claiming that playing against Espanyol was better than sex.
He said on The Wild Project with YouTuber Jordi Wild: ‘I’m happy that Espanyol has been promoted to the first division because that’s how we play in their stadium.

‘I like to go there, I get whistled at all the time. You laugh and the fans get even madder.
‘There is nothing comparable in the world. I would say it’s better than sex. I enjoy it a lot more than playing against Real Madrid.’
The Hips Don’t Lie singer previously praised her boyfriend on his parenting style, claiming he’s her ‘biggest support’ when it comes to raising their children.
She said: ‘He’s got his feet on the ground and is very practical about problem-solving. When I get stressed about how to organize things or juggle it all, he helps put it all in perspective.
‘And he is my biggest support. We’re both very hands-on parents, so it never feels like one is carrying the entire load on their own. He probably lets them have a little more chocolate than I’d like, though.’
