Andrew Garfield is mixing work, play, and charity during his visit down under this week [1]! The Amazing Spider-Man star hit the waves on Bondi Beach in Australia on Thursday to lend his time to Hunter Connect, an Australia-based nonprofit organization that supports families and children with autism. Andrew joined professional surfer Joel Parkinson for the Surfers For Autism program and helped teach a group of young kids how to ride the waves. The adorable photos show Andrew paddling with a little boy, cheering him on from the water, and autographing a surfboard while posing for pictures. Hunter Connect shared one of the snaps [2] on its Facebook page, saying, "Just had an amazing morning with the Amazing Spider-Man Andrew Garfield & Joel Parkinson. Both were incredibly understanding and genuine with our Hunter Connect children whilst catching some waves." See Andrew's sweet day of surfing when you keep reading.
