I remember several years ago when USA Wrestling began promoting competitive beach wrestling. Beach volleyball had been popular for years, so why not do the same thing for wrestling? It's a warm summer day, rolling around with another dude on the beach. Sand up your nose. Tiny pebbles in your hair. Little shell fragments embedded in your back. What's not fun about that? I have to admit that wrestling on the beach in Florida or California is probably a lot more fun that on the shores of Lake Michigan, but hey, who am I to complain about another excuse to wrestle? Anyway, beach wrestling is still going strong, and not just amateur style. Wrestler4Hire has an awesome beach wrestling match that features Brad Barnes, who is one my absolute favorite wrestlers. Brad's opponent in this one is Jake Steele, who at 6' 1" seems to tower over our bodybuilder hero. But given Brad's thick muscles, both wrestlers are close in weight. At the beginning of the match, Jake brags about his prowess in yoga. Umm, yoga? How much do you think yoga is going to help out Jake in hand to hand beach combat against Brad? Based on these screen caps from the match, I think you get the picture. W4H says about Jake that he's a fitness guru and jock who enjoys trying new things. After his run in with our muscleboy Brad, I don't think Jake will be trying any more wrestling.
Dude, I gotta hang out at the beach more!
