What star proved he’s a real life superhero too?

Even though Andrew Garfield is known for playing superhero Spiderman, the Hollywood star proved he is a hero off-screen as well.

While Garfield was out promoting “The Amazing Spiderman 2” in Sydney, Australia the actor made some time to volunteer with Hunter Connect, at an event teaching children with autism to surf.

Garfield helped one young boy surf and cheered him on when he rode the waves on a Spider-Man surfboard.

The actor also signed autographs and posed for photos with fans, as well as catching a few waves himself.
