Christopher Garth (38) and his girlfriend, Lauren Oiye (32), decided to go surfing in their hometown of Honolulu in Hawaii, Mirror News reports.
But Lauren had no idea the love of her life would be popping the big question.
The pair were surfing at the exact spot where they first met when Christopher pulled out a ring from his short’s pocket, got down on one knee on his surfboard and asked Lauren to marry him.
Before the excited woman could give him an answer, Christopher hit a slight bump and accidentally dropped the ring in the sea, Independent reports.
Luckily, the ring was a spare and the real one was waiting for the bride-to-be on the shore.
Lauren took to Instagram to share the news of her engagement with her followers.
“Christopher Garth, I love you and am so grateful the stars aligned and our ancestors who came before us so beautifully orchestrated this for us!” she captioned her post.
“Here’s to a lifetime of laughter and keeping things simple and authentic! I said YES.”

• •• Like everything with us... there is always a good story to accompany. • •• This morning my best friend @this_garth and I went out for a surf. Little did I know he would be asking me to be his partner for life! • •• Story time: we caught a wave together at the surf break we met at and had many of our first dates. I turn back to make sure he was on the wave with me and he was on one knee with a ring box and screamed out “Lauren, I love you! Will you marry me?!” At first I thought it was a joke and then realized it clearly wasn’t. And of course I am beside myself that I get to spend the rest of my life with this man that I LOVE from the depths of my entire being, is a bigger feminist than I am, and makes me laugh everyday and reminds me how simple and beautiful life is. • •• Christopher Garth, I love you and am so grateful the stars aligned and our ancestors that came before us so beautifully orchestrated this for us! Here’s to a lifetime of laughter and keeping things simple and authentic! • •• I said YES ?? • •• Thank you @tommypierucki @aaronmizu @lisaunderwater @chrisberinger for documenting this incredible event! ????????
