Island King Surfs

I can’t help but be a little amused, and quite amazed at this photo of the late Kinga Taufa’ahau Tupou IV catching some waves.  At apparently over 500 lbs (227.27 kg’s), it seems he may just have been one of the heaviest surfers out there, and good on him for taking up the challenge and doing it so gracefully, in true Royal style.

I wonder if the new generation of Pacific King’s, Queens, Princes and Princesses are out and about and enjoying life’s simple pleasures?

There’s still hope for me to get up on that board!
