Stiff Upper Nip: Topless Paddleboarder Takes to River Thames During Hailstorm

Hailstones “the size of ice cubes” were reported during a storm in South West London on August 12, but that didn’t stop one determined paddleboarder going for a topless trip down the River Thames. Twickenham resident Ruth Wadey captured footage of the brave soul as he made his way past her riverside apartment. She told Storyful that the area was hit with heavy rain, strong winds and large hailstones on Wednesday afternoon, “creating havoc, bringing down trees and flooding many areas of the town.” Posting footage of the topless individual on the water, she wrote that she would “not have wanted to have been on a paddleboard during the huge thunder/hailstorm we had.” Credit: Ruth Wadey via Storyful
