Kodak moment: David Beckham captures his oldest son Brooklyn on the waves in Malibu
David Beckham's new motto: while the women are away, the men shall play.
The soccer star and 12-year-old son Brooklyn frolicked in the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, California, today.
David acted as the photographer as he snapped his oldest son catching some waves.

Wife Victoria rested at home with daughter Harper Seven, who was born just over a week ago on 10 July.
David and his oldest son surfed and boogey-boarded the day away, pausing to take a break when pal Eva Longoria came down to the beach for a visit.
Thankfully the L.A. Galaxy midfielder has three sons to play around with (Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6, aren't pictured), given that he said this week he's learning to be more 'delicate' with his newborn daughter.

'Having a daughter is a whole new thing... you have to be a lot more delicate with girls than with boys and I'm not used to that.

Surfer boys: David and Brooklyn take to the waves
He's clearly smitten with the first female child in his family, and couldn't resist taking an intimate photograph of his wife and daughter as they slept.
But David is clearly smitten with her little girl and couldn't resist taking an intimate snap of Victoria and their baby daughter as they slept.
He also posted the touching picture on Facebook, gushing, 'I took this picture of my two girls sleeping...'

His fashion designer wife posted a similar snap on her Twitter page with the caption, 'Daddy's little girl!'
A similar picture was posted by Victoria on Twitter and the footballer couldn't look any more tender as he cradles his daughter.

In the shot, David is shown giving an eskimo kiss to his little girl, who is wrapped up in a blanket and wearing a tiny hat.
If more proof is needed that he's besotted, he's also had her name stitched on to his pink football boots; pink to honour his 'girl', of course.
