A Ring and A Wave: See the Proposal


Last Sunday, surfer Chris Garth dropped in then dropped down on one knee to propose to girlfriend Lauren Oiye in Hawaii. The proposal was so sweet that Associated Press picked up on the story so we could share it with you.

And in a plot twist.  Hawaii News reported that Lauren Oiye in fact said yes.... just before Chris Garth dropped the ring in the ocean! Reports have it that Garth was prepared. He knew proposing in the ocean could go terribly wrong, so he used a stand-in ring while there were in the water. Chris gave Oiye the real ring once they reached shore. The real ring was on shore at Queen's Beach, where the two met years before. (Tommy Pierucki via AP)

Multiple photographers nearby captured the Sunday moment.
