When Jason Koch called us at TradeWinds to see if we could help him pull off a proposal to his girlfriend, Julia, using the JetLev, we immediately said yes. We’ve been loving our new JetLev and watching our thrill seeking guests enjoy the ride, but never did we think we’d get a request such as this one!
Jason had explained that he had seen a video of the new JetLev and that night had had a dream that he used the JetLev to propose to Julia. A month later he saw TradeWinds’ LivingSocial deal for the JetLev and knew he had to act out his dream. With his and Julia’s fun and adventurous personalities the JetLev was a very fitting way to propose.
The day of the proposal Jason sent Julia on a scavenger hunt, which sent her around town to all of their favorite places. The final note she received told her to go home, change into her swimsuit and come to TradeWinds for “the ride of her life”.
When she arrived she was told she’d be taking a ride on TradeWinds’ JetLev. Once she was in the water, Jason channeled James Bond as he snuck onto the boat donned in a full tuxedo. After sprinkling the boat with flowers and getting music prepared, Julia was brought back to the boat.
As she climbed up the boat stairs Train’s “Marry Me” started playing and she went from confused to elated.
After a few excited kisses Jason got down on one knee and said…
“Whether it’s taking our first step onto a JetLev, or watching our future kids take their first steps. I want to take this journey, this adventure of a lifetime with you. Julia, ‘Will you marry me?’”
And her answer?
I’d say that was a yes
TradeWinds was so thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful memory! Congratulations Jason and Julia!
See you on the beach!
