Shakira has picked up a new hobby that's keeping her active during the coronavirus pandemic.

In recent months, the 43-year-old Colombian superstar has taken fans on her journey into the world of skateboarding by sharing several photos and videos of herself having a blast -- and looking like a pro -- while swerving through the streets on her board.

"I love skating at sunset," Shak captioned an impressive Instagram video of herself in action on Saturday (Sept. 12).

In the clip, which features the Imanbek remix of "Roses" by SAINt JHN, the "Hips Don't Lie" singer flashes a huge smile as she glides through a public street while wearing a short black skirt and protective gear on her knees and elbows.

In June, Shakira posted a video montage of herself coasting down various roads on her board, writing, "My new hobby: it was either this or pottery." A month later, she shared a pic of herself hold her blue skateboard, encouraging fans to "get a new hobby in your life."

Outside of skateboarding, Shak revealed in May that she's working on new music during quarantine. As if that wasn't enough, she also recently graduated from a four-week online course in philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania.
