Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift was apparently a natural when she walked in.

The Grammy winner sported a retro-cut bikini for a paddleboarding excursion Wednesday with a couple of female friends at Napatree Beach in Watch Hill, R.I., where she has a summer home.

Verdict?

Taylor appears to have stayed upright as she guided her board through calm water near the shore.

"She had a little trouble getting off the board, but she definitely held her own," a witness told People afterward.

Currently on a break from her smash-hit Red Tour, Swift woke up last week to three nominations for the 2013 MTV Video Music Award nominations: Video of the Year, Female Video of the Year and Best Song of the Summer, all for "I Knew You Were Trouble."

Before heading to Rhode Island, the singer made a Philadelphia waiter's day last Friday when her table, which included touring partner Ed Sheeran and Austin Mahone, left a $500 tip.
