Now that the summer holiday has arrived he’s also riding high off the track – exploring the stunning scenery of Namibia.

As he shared a number of stunning pictures on Instagram, the seven-time world champion wrote: “This year I’m spending my summer break doing something I’ve wanted to do for years.

“I’m finally tracing my roots through Africa and guys, to say this journey has been a grounding experience is an understatement.

“This has been a life changing reset. I feel like I have gained a new perspective on life, grown an even stronger love for animals and became even closer with my brothers who I’ve shared this special journey with.

“Everywhere I look I’m surrounded by so much beauty, and I feel truly re-centred and at peace.

“My first stop was Namibia, one of the most stunning places I’ve ever seen with my own eyes. Words and pictures do not do it justice.

“The hot air balloon ride was surreal.

“We had to land sideways which is definitely something I’ll never forget.

“I could not think of a better place to spend this time off. Sending everyone peace and light, I’m off to the next stop.”

Hamilton, 37, posed for snaps in the desert in the South West African country.

He recently hit the waves on a £20,000 electric jet-surfboard.
