Alessandra Ambrosio shows model figure in small neon green bikini while playing beach volleyball

Beach volleyball is not only a great source of fun, it is also used by the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio as a means of bringing friends, family and other sports enthusiasts together.

And with the old supermodel making it part of her workout regime many years ago, the results of all her hard work and fun in the sun are unquestionable.

On Sunday, the Brazilian-born starlet showed those results when she took to the beach near her home in Santa Monica for beach volleyball with a friend dressed in a neon green bikini.

Friend Richard Lee was among the other players also on hand to show off their volleyball skills, packing on the PDA with his ladylove during intermissions.

The skinny two-piece, which left little to the imagination, showed her ripped abs and wide cleavage.

Whether serving the ball or supporting a teammate, the old Victoria’s Secret Angel looked competitive and determined during the matches.

To help block out the blazing sun, she wore a blue and white tie-dye baseball cap over her long brown locks and mirrored sunglasses.

During the day, Ambrosio and Lee regularly took time out and wrapped the PDA with a kiss or loving touch or two.

They also piled on the PDA as all the players took breaks from the action to recline on a towel on the sand or an easy chair.

The day also included hanging out by the pool with some bikini-clad girlfriends, who were showcased in a short video posted to Instagram.

“Watermelon sugar chill… #sundayvibes #GALSfromBahia,” she wrote in the caption, in a likely reference that her friends are all from Bahia, a northeastern state in her native Brazil.

For the clip, Ambrosio slipped into a red bikini and was seen snacking on a slice of watermelon.

There’s no question that the bikinis she wore on Sunday came from the Gal Floripa swimsuit line she started with her younger sister, Aline, and best friend. Gisele Coria.

‘We work with local women [in Brazil] and produce everything locally,” she revealed during a cover story interview with Hamptons in June.

‘It’s a great project. We are super close. We all have a bit of the same vision, which complements each other,” she added.

When it comes to choosing the right swimsuit for a given situation, Ambrosio told her it’s all about comfort and practicality.

‘I love going to the beach and playing volleyball. And I always have my kids with me — so I want something practical, something that won’t fall off or show off. Find something you feel comfortable in, in which you can move.’

To help shape her fabulous figure, the former catwalk queen also incorporates private exercise sessions with a trainer, Pilates, walks and walks along the beach to her workout routine.
