Giving his fans a little thrill, Taylor Lautner ditched his t-shirt and hopped into the ocean to film scenes for his new movie “Run the Tide” in Los Angeles on Tuesday (June 17).

The “Twilight Saga: New Moon” hunk donned a pair of blue board shorts and proved to his critics that his physique hasn’t gone soft since wrapping up his Jacob Black gig.

In “Run the Tide,” Taylor plays a man who kidnaps his younger brother and takes off to California following the prison release of their drug-addicted mother.

Directed by Soham Mehta and written by Rajiv Shah, the project also stars Austin Michael Coleman and Derek Krantz.
