So I am at a world class wave-kiting spot, with waves, warm water, tropical etc. etc. etc. Its basically going off. It's richter (meaning beyond epic, biblical, as good as it gets). I'm watching conditions from my van as I'm waiting for solid wind cuz I have been out for 4 days in a row & my body is aching all over. The reasoning is to preserve my energy so that I will kite during the best hour of the day.
Down the higway comes a man in his 40's with long black hair in a ponytail. He is wearing women's shorts. Clearly these are girls shorts as they aren't even close to mid-thigh length shorts. These are like full-on hotpants if any of you farts as old as I am & actually remember the 70's!!!!
He pumps up his kite, lays out he lines & is getting ready to go. I say to my friend, "Dude! You aren't even prepared for this day at all!" He looks at me preplexed & says, "WHAT! It's going off????" I nod to the other guy & say, "If you had a pair of chicks shorts on, aka hotpants, you would rip!!!" He says something to the guy in spanish & laughs! The guy turns, pulls his hot-pants to the side, revealing his balls. Yes his scrotum, the thing dangling below his pole! He says something in spanish, launches his kite & off he goes. I turn to my friend & say, "What the f***" as we're both laughing hysterically.
He tells me that the bloke is from Argentina, he forgot his trunks, had to borrow his wife's shorts & off he went. I laughed my ass off! How many of you would proudly sport your wife's panties if it was do-or-die & conditions were epic???? I know I would
