And then...

they actually made it onto the Channel 7 10:00 news! Thankfully they edited out the part where Troy was doing armpit farts!

i was trying to think of a nice way to say this, but there isn't one....body surfing with a tropical storm is idiotic! forget the wind--what about the big waves and the undertow? i'm glad they're ok. i'm sure they had a blast.

FYI,

The waves weren't really that big, and the undertow was no stronger than usual.

The highlight was when the local news channel came by and started filming us. I reciprocated by doing some armpit farts for the camera. This created bigger waves.

Ciao,
Troy

Actually, the waves were huge. 100 yards away stood a cameraman, fixed on us, when Troy, on the verge of being sucked away by a mighty undertow, attempted to call for help with rapid armpit farts yelling "hey, hey, over here, over here!!" Fortunately, the realization that soon Troy would be a local celebrity once we were broadcast on the evening news, created such a surge of adrenalin in Troy that no undertow of any sort, could have sucked Troy away. It was awesome. I think people were crying tears of joy, and shouting alleluias from the shore. I wish you could all experience such a thing....

Yeah you only live once...and then you die. Or is it that you die once...? Either seems appropriately biblical actually. Glad you had a blast and that you lived to tell about it. Geesh!!

Look on the bright side, Heather. At least he was only farting with his armpits this time. Thank God for little victories... = )

PS: We've got DSL now so give me a shout next time you see me on Skype!
