A look back the boys' humble beginnings!
One Direction continued to invade Australia on Thursday, as bandmates Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne enjoyed a little surf action at — where else? — Manly beach, in Sydney.

Sadly, the boys kept their shirts on this time, unlike their recent dip in the Sydney Harbour. Still, fans were able to catch the boys smiling and splashing around in wetsuits. Really, what more could you ask for?

One Direction — which is additionally comprised of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles — have practically conquered the world since the debut of their first CD, Up All Night. The CD — which hit stores in the U.S. on March 21, 2012 — broke records Stateside, and landed them on Saturday Night Live for the very first time last weekend.

If that wasn’t proof enough of their success, it was reported today that their first headline tour sold out in minutes, including their Dec. 3 stop at Madison Square Garden. To accommodate fans, One Direction announced that they will launch a 25-city tour in Summer 2013, with stops in New York City, Boston, Nashville and more!

What do you make of all this news, 1D fans? Did you get your tickets today? And who’s hotter: Louis or Liam? Sound off in the comments!
