After her separation from Gerard Piqué, Shakira enjoys being single with one of her favorite hobbies: surfing.
The famous singer has proven to be an expert in this sport thanks to her innate talent and the help of coaches like Gorka Ezkurdia. The name of the handsome Spanish instructor came to light at the end of 2022 when he was seen next to the Colombian in the sea.
Thus, many speculations arose that suggested a romance between the two. However, the artist ruled out those rumors. “Out of respect for my children and the vulnerable moment they are going through, I ask the media to stop the speculation. I have no partner and no illusion other than dedicating myself entirely to my children and their well-being,” he told EFE in December 2022.
Shakira has been closely connected to the sea since her separation from Gerard Piqué
In mid-2023, she has already been linked to stars like Tom Cruise and Lewis Hamilton, but everything seems to indicate that the lessons learned with Ezkurdia are still present in her life. According to People en Español, the woman from Barranquilla was captured by The Grosby Group on a vacation trip in Costa Rica. There, she was seen surfing next to a handsome instructor who saved her from an accident in the water. Although it has not been possible to identify the singer-songwriter’s companion, various users of social networks suggest that it would be Gorka Ezkurdia.
The First Images of Gorka Ezkurdia and Shakira
As we previously mentioned, Shakira was seen with this young man at the end of 2022 when she was captured by the journalist Jordi Martín on the beaches of Cantabria. Some time later, the reporter recounted her experience on the program “El Gordo y la Flaca.” “I received information that Shakira was going to take a trip with her children. She really likes to surf, and I was told that she was a very tight getaway. When I arrived in Cantabria, my surprise was that I found this surf instructor at the house with Shakira,” said the press man. “It’s true that I haven’t caught a kiss, so we can’t talk about dating, but I was two days behind them, and I can say that at all times, he was very attentive to her, affectionate, and she looked at him,” he pointed out.
Who is Gorka Ezkurdia?
Gorka Ezkurdia is a young 26-year-old surf instructor. He was born in Oiartzun, very close to San Sebastián, and studied a cycle of naval mechanics. It is also known that he has a brother, with whom he shares his passion for the sea. The athlete has more than 35,000 followers on his Instagram account, where a snapshot he took of Shakira in 2020 stands out.
The Other profession of Gorka Ezkurdia
Gorka Ezkurdia has been dedicated to professional photography since 2015. He started this career as a hobby but ended up becoming a professional in this art. He has specialized in aquatic photography and has worked for different brands and surfers from high-level. In addition, this facet of his life has allowed him to visit “many incredible places”. His expertise in this area earned him the title of being the cover figure of Surflimit magazine in 2021. “I want to thank the entire Surflimit team for counting on me and also thanking all the brands in the surf industry that value our work, that of the photographers,” he wrote at the time.
