Apple’s waterproofing on the iPhone 7 is looking worthy of the price to upgrade alone.

I can’t count how many iPhones I’ve destroyed over the last nine years during water accidents. But after watching the iPhone 7 take a surfing lesson at Australia’s beautiful Bondi Beach, it looks like Apple totally undersold just how water-resistant the new smartphone truly is.

Watch the iPhone 7 catch waves:

In addition to being the iPhone 7’s watery proving ground, the sea-green waters of Bondi Beach were the inspiration behind the Bondi Blue color that the iMac G3 originally came in.

Other iPhone 7 water tests

If that spectacular Aussie surfing test doesn’t impress you, this guy dunked the iPhone 7 in water, soda and coffee for five minutes.

Spoiler alert: Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus came back working just fine. No leaks or screen problems.
