Over the weekend, a Hawaiian man dropped to one knee to propose as he and his girlfriend were surfing a wave--literally. Global News reports that Chris Garth had decided to pop the question at the same place he and girlfriend Lauren Oiye met two years ago. As they caught the same wave, he knelt on his surfboard and asked for her hand. The ring fell into the ocean after she said yes, but he'd been prepared and had the real ring waiting for her on the beach. Oiye created a video from the photographs taken that day and posted it on Instagram. “At first I thought it was a joke and then realized it clearly wasn’t,” she said, adding, "Of course I am beside myself that I get to spend the rest of my life with this man that I love from the depths of my entire being."

• •• Like everything with us... there is always a good story to accompany. • •• This morning my best friend @this_garth and I went out for a surf. Little did I know he would be asking me to be his partner for life! • •• Story time: we caught a wave together at the surf break we met at and had many of our first dates. I turn back to make sure he was on the wave with me and he was on one knee with a ring box and screamed out “Lauren, I love you! Will you marry me?!” At first I thought it was a joke and then realized it clearly wasn’t. And of course I am beside myself that I get to spend the rest of my life with this man that I LOVE from the depths of my entire being, is a bigger feminist than I am, and makes me laugh everyday and reminds me how simple and beautiful life is. • •• Christopher Garth, I love you and am so grateful the stars aligned and our ancestors that came before us so beautifully orchestrated this for us! Here’s to a lifetime of laughter and keeping things simple and authentic! • •• I said YES -- • •• Thank you @tommypierucki @aaronmizu @lisaunderwater @chrisberinger for documenting this incredible event! ❤️----❤️
