Surf instructor proposes while surfing

01:45

This is the moment surf instrctor Pete Abell got down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend, as they were both surfing.

Pete Abell who runs Kingsurf in Mawgan Porth in Cornwall, and Angie de Burgh were riding the Severn Bore in the Bristol Channel, when he popped the question.

As he holds out the ring, balancing on the tidal wave along the river Severn, she shouts "yes!".

Pete says it was a sentimental moment, as it's where his dad - who passed away 3 weeks ago- proposed to his mum.

He says he discussed the idea with his dad before he died, who was ecstatic at his sons plan.

The couple first met at Swansea University, before meeting again whilst riding the Severn Bore three years ago.

Pete said he was worried, as so much could have gone wrong, but now says the couple are "stoked" about their future together.
