Oh and if you have a "man bun" might want to get rid of it,the hottest chicks aren't digging them this year.Oh and maybe a good pair of shades to protect your eyes on the water.Years from now you''ll appreciate being able to see the ladies from your wheelchair while showing your gopro footage from your glory years,the old chicks will be putty in your hands!
