If your future wife is giving you a hard time about taking of your ring to surf, break it off now because she's an insecure nut case who will haunt you the rest of your life !!!!
Haha. No, its not like that. I am the one worried about it. I dont wear jewelery, so I had never thought about it... and as for my future wife, i convinced her to move 3000 miles away from her family so that I could chase waves and live my dreams. And 8 years later, she is still by my side and I have been able to do what I love every day of my life. She has clocked like 500+ hours behind my video camera taking surf footage. Countless voyages to mexico when she probably shouldnt have gone... Long story short is that this girl is a surfer's dream. She is down. So I guess I am the lucky one. This wedding just makes it official.
Not to mention that she wanted to go to Maui for the honeymoon, so I can surf. She is also letting me bring my golf clubs, so the fact that the wife to be has given me the o.k. to surf hawaiian points all week and golf tropical golf courses makes her an A++++++++.
So, many people have commented about this ring question being pressure from her. Not at all. I am a dumbas$ and she has to help me find my car keys everyday. I can't even keep track of a pair of nice sunglasses much less a ring! So this question was all me.
i take mine off and put it in the ashtray/cash tray i keep my shower quarters in. the hand shrinkage is real in cold water... and i understand the space cadet aspect...once you establish a routine, it's easier to remember what to do with it and where it is...also, i heard somewhere that flashing jewelry attracts sharks....of all kinds.
congratulations and good luck
I used to lose rings all the time so seldom have worn one for 30+ yrs. Misplaced my wedding ring and found it this summer during a major cleaning after it being MIA for 15+ years. Forgot where I put it already! Like the lady said it really is of no great consequence. And it certainly beats a couple of buddy's deep sh*t after losing their rings while surfing -- big lay downs from the wifey plus major expense in buying a new one.
He he, I put my ring on at the wedding and my wife found it on the side of the bed shortly after. I hate jewelry and especially the feeling of a ring. I told her I couldn't stand the feeling and wouldn't wear it so she put it in her jewelry box and it sits there still after 18 years.
The ring will come off in the water no matter how well it fits, that's why all the guys with metal detectors are finding rings on the beach. Take it off unless you want to loose it.
I'm with Zippy on this. I hate jewelry. I bought a back-up ring. I keep it in my car. I wear it when we go out someplace nice together (cause I usually forget the original). Most of the time my original is sitting at home. I wear it from time to time cause I know it makes her happy, but I would never wear a ring surfing. That's just asking to lose it.
Keep in mind the cooler water shrinks you hands. Have forgotten to take my ring off and have had to buy 2 replacements. One the wife knows about the second she does not. Not fun trying to find the same ring.
i have now lost 3 at the beach. $$$$ (just dropping it in the sand is a total cluster fvck). her irritation will be more if you lose the ring. take it off and leave it in the car.
