"The amazing part of the job was that he could catch waves so easily in that suit," he said.

"The footage we shot depended 100 per cent on Chris being able to hold his own in the water.

"Audiences worldwide get that element of surprise to see a star they know from the big screen carving some pretty decent waves.

"And of course he had to look great walking out of the water in a dripping wet Hugo Boss suit. I don't remember hearing any complaints from the girls on crew."

Mudgeeraba and Hinterland councillor Glenn Tozer's wife Jude Kalman works for Fotomedia.

Cr Tozer shared a photo on Facebook from the set on the day writing: "That feeling when your wife leaves your marriage bed at 2.30am in the morning to go to the beach with 'Chris'".
