Reminds me of a similar story. I moved to HI and drove up to Haleiwa with a guy I worked with to surf up north for an early winter day. He put his board on the back of my pickup and went back to grab something else out of the car as I commented, "wow that's a really nice shape." He said, "thanks man, it's a few months old but I take really good care of it." Suddenly this wind gust came and blew his board a few feet in the air and straight onto a rock. He got super pissed off, "why'd you have to say how nice it is? it's all your fault!!" hilarious.
