Nick Bateman is Malibu's Golden Boy

EXCLUSIVE

Nick Bateman looks good doing just about anything with his shirt off -- and it goes without saying ... that applies to a day at the beach.

We got the model in Malibu where he got his fris on and eventually hit the waves, showing off his impressive torso in the process. 

Check out the pics -- water temps have dipped below 70 degrees lately ... but shrinkage ain't a problem for Nick.
