Surfer drops ring in the ocean while proposing

One excited groom-to-be took his girlfriend surfing, got on one knee mid-ocean on the surfboard, then lost his grip and dropped the ring into the sea. Luckily, though, it wasn’t the real one, and it all ended well. The real ring was waiting safely on shore and she said yes!

Christopher Garth and his girlfriend, Lauren Oiye from Honolulu, Hawaii have been dating eight years and both love surfing. When he decided it’s time to pop the question, Christopher took Lauren to the surf spot they went surfing on their first date. She had no idea what was about to happen.

Lauren took to Instagram to share their love story, as photographers nearby got some snaps:

“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”
