Local wakesurfer Marcus Kee had an unusual way of proposing to his girlfriend Nicole Anne Low.
Seeing how they both love the water – what with Marcus and Nicole being wakesurfers – Marcus decided to prepare something special for his other half.
Having already proposed over the phone to Nicole a while back, the couple were out on Marcus’ new boat for a supposed pre-wedding photoshoot.
But Marcus clearly had other ideas.
In a clip uploaded on Nicole’s TikTok account yesterday (Nov 17), Marcus got down on one knee while riding on the wakesurf board, much to the surprise of a delighted Nicole.
The wakesurf coach’s plan seemed to have gone awry initially as he fell into the water and ‘lost’ the ring.
But Marcus still had a trick up his sleeve as he got back on the boat.
While Nicole was consoling him, he obtained the actual engagement ring from his friend onboard and bent the knee once again to propose.
Though momentarily confused, Nicole regained her senses and quickly said ‘yes’ before the lucky couple kissed.
Nicole mentioned that she was genuinely surprised by Marcus’ quirky proposal because “he’s a very simple guy that’s why [she] would never see this coming at all”.
And of course, they had to wakesurf into the sunset together.
With the lucky couple riding the waves together, they got down to the photoshoot that they originally intended, with a proud Nicole flashing her new wedding bling in a second TikTok video.
Their antics clearly charmed netizens as their proposal video has seen over 423,000 views, over 44,000 likes and 161 comments.
Many touched netizens voiced out in the comments and praised their “cute” wedding proposal.
A netizen labelled it a “high tier proposal” while others feared that it might have raised the bar for local wedding proposals.
Marcus and Nicole’s unusual wedding proposal might have even inspired others to do the same with one commenter saying that he “needs to propose while skydiving”.
Guess the tried-and-tested line of ‘will you BTO with me’ is just not going to cut it now guys.
