Looks pretty fun to me

Though I too have aversions to the words "speedo" and "fun" in such proximity

Beautiful flying site!

We have an aversion to small men's "speedo" swimsuits.

The possibility that the video included someone sloping while wearing one of these "banana slings" is enough to make most wretch . We're an unsophisticated bunch

Maybe if there's a beach in Venice, Italy

At "the" Venice Beach, you can get away with a lot, but Speedos are right out

Case in point: the "annoying Speedo Guy" having some speedo fun
