Wetsuit Shopping



I just don’t understand. It confuses me so much my brain goes into melt down; it’s almost a cross between sheer amazement and disbelief. What’s this guy thinking? Is it some sort of dare? Or practical joke maybe? I’ve seen this sort of behaviour before but this is taking it to the next level. Bear in mind that the guy pictured above is shopping in Tesco’s in Braunton which is approximately a 10 minute drive to the sea, at first you probably think ‘strange guy shopping shirtless but give him the benefit of the doubt as it has been pretty hot this weekend’ but then look again and it will slowly start to sink in that this guy is actually shopping in his wetsuit. What processes anyone to do such a thing? or is it me? Am I the odd one thinking that this is just not normal and slightly strange, if so I need to know.
Yeah I like my wetsuit and to be honest its dam comfy but I wear it in the sea and that’s about it. It happens like this. Decide to go surfing, drive to beach, PUT WETSUIT ON, walk to beach, (which is usually 5 min walk at most) surf, get out the sea, walk back to car, TAKE WETSUIT OFF, get changed and drive home again. Simple.
So what the hell was this guy thinking? Or is simply making a statement ‘hey everyone I’m a surfer’ or ‘check me out in my wetsuit, all bare chested amongst the fruit and veg’, Whatever this guys thinking or stating for that matter, nothing takes away from the fact he’s actually shopping in his wetsuit, in Tesco.....

  10. So he's shopping in Tesco shirtless. Thirty years ago it would have been a very common sight, believe it or not.

  11. Yeah but thirty years later a wetsuit in a shopping mall is just odd.
