Chris Hemsworth flaunts his muscles during homeschool surf session in Byron Bay

He’s currently homeschooling his three young children after Byron Bay was plunged into lockdown last week.

But Chris Hemsworth kept his class entertained on Friday, as he took India Rose, eight, and twin sons Sasha and Tristan, seven, for an action-packed surfing session at a beach near their home.

The hunky Thor actor, who turned 38 last week, flaunted his bulging biceps as he stripped off his wetsuit in the parking lot after the energetic activities.

Daddy cool! Chris Hemsworth took his children India Rose, eight, and twin sons Sasha and Tristan, seven, for a home-school surfing session at a beach near their home on Friday

He confidently zipped down the tight ensemble, arching his back to show off his rock-hard abs and muscular arms to perfection.

Earlier, Chris threw three surfboards underneath his arm before hitting the ocean with his children.

India couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she headed into the ocean with her dad, crashing into the water and she practiced her skills the small waves.

On Monday 9 August, Byron Bay, Richmond Valley, Lismore and Ballina Shire went into lockdown with restrictions set to stay in place until 12.01am on August 17. 

But after a record number of cases in New South Wales were unveiled over the weekend, all regional areas were plunged into a further lockdown until at least 12.01am on Sunday August 22.

The news was first confirmed by Deputy Premier John Barilaro on Twitter at 2.30pm on Saturday – not at the regular 11am Covid press conference with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

‘To minimise movement and protect our communities from the evolving Covid-19 situation in Sydney, stay-at-home orders will be introduced for all of regional NSW from 5pm tonight,’ Barilaro wrote. 

NSW Health later released a statement stating that residents living outside of the Greater Sydney areas will be locked down until 12.01am on Sunday August 22. 

‘Following updated health advice from NSW chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant, stay-at-home orders will apply to all people who live in regional NSW. This means the whole of New South Wales will be under stay at home restrictions from 5pm today.’ 

Like in Sydney, everyone in the areas may only leave their home to obtain food, for exercise, medical reasons, to care for a vulnerable person, or for work or education if it’s not possible to do so at home. 

Homeschool continues: Last week, Byron Bay, Richmond Valley, Lismore and Ballina Shire went into lockdown with restrictions staying in place until at least 12.01am on August 17. But after a record number of cases in NSW were unveiled over the weekend, all regional areas were plunged into a further lockdown until at least 12.01am on Sunday August 22

Travel freedoms within the state have also been altered significantly after it was found a number of Sydney residents were exploiting loopholes and exposing regional areas to the virus.

Zoran Radovanovic, 52, from Sydney’s suburb of Rose Bay is being treated for the virus in Lismore Hospital after allegedly driving 720km to Byron Bay to view a property.

‘You will need a permit [to travel to regional NSW], which will be effective from next Saturday but between now and then police can stop you and seek evidence for what you are doing,’ NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said. 

'[My children] just crave interaction with other kids so much, obviously, and that's a challenge,' Chris said of homeschooling
