Taylor Swift evidently loves making a splash.
The 23-year-old was spotted paddle boarding in Rhode Island on Tuesday, just days after she surprised a restaurant chef by leaving a whopping $500 tip.
The singer looked like an experienced paddler as she confidently steered the craft across a lake, standing on her feet.

She showed off her lean figure in a sporty red bikini and also looked to have been enjoying the sunshine, sporting a deep tan.
E! News reports that the stars met the restaurant’s head chef who was a big fan of Taylor’s and requested to have a photo taken with her.
The chef said: ‘I called my mom to tell her Swift was there, and she wanted me to take a picture because she is a big fan,
‘My son has autism, and while I’m at work my mom and my son love to listen to her music. He loves her music!’
The singer then gave the chef two tickets to her concert, which was held the following night.
‘It was so kind-hearted of her,’ the chef said. ‘My son is 11. It was my son and I’s first concert we’ve ever been to! It was really special.’
And Taylor’ generosity didn’t end there – the chef also reported that her team left a $500 tip.
