Severn Bore surfer pops big question while riding with girlfriend

17 October 2016 Last updated at 12:43 BST

A surfer got down on one knee on his surf board to propose to his girlfriend as they both surfed the Severn Bore in Gloucestershire.

Peter Abell, who runs a surf school in Cornwall but lives near Gloucester, popped the question from his board – thankfully without dropping the ring or losing his balance.

And of course his long-term girlfriend Angie de Burgh said “yes”.

The Severn Bore is a large surge wave that travels from the estuary of the River Severn near Bristol up to Gloucester.
