Nothing like burning some calories before indulging in a big feast! One day before Thanksgiving, Justin Bieber took to the waves -- and showed off his washboard abs! -- while surfing in Australia on Wednesday. The 19-year-old pop star enjoyed some of his downtime at Wategos Beach in Byron Bay.

The "Boyfriend" singer went shirtless and wore oversized, black beach shorts for the surfing adventure. He showed off several of his tattoos and kept his shaggy locks swept back off his face as he was joined by a few friends. The afternoon outing took place just one day after Bieber performed his first Believe concert in Brisbane.

Two days later, the "Love Me" singer revealed another surprise besides his surfing skills -- a new tattoo! "Great show again in Sydney. Love Australia. Thank u. Melbourne is next. I have something special to take care of there. #believe," he tweeted on Friday, Nov. 29. He added: "Just got off stage bout to get tatted."

On Saturday, the "As Long As You Love Me" entertainer shared an Instagram photo while in the middle of getting his new ink. In the photo, Bieber went shirtless and looked tired as he got an eagle tattooed on his left shoulder.
