gambitscuba (whatever that means),

It is up to you to get some good Speedo pics from your town. Where are they?

Default Speedo & Bling

Don't know if this qualifies for the hariest speedo pic. But the bling is bigger than the speedo.

That is awesome! I have seen that one before. Is it in Rio? He looks pretty proud of the way he looks. I think that is the kind of Speedo guy most people fear most. Great pic!!

DTW: I don't know if that is Rio or not? Been very very afraid to research the origins of that pic.

But I found this and thought it was funny:
.

Venice: hopefully that picture is not anyone we know 20 years from now.

gambitscuba... gambit = nickname which i recieved for always having a deck of cards (Gambit the Xman... har har har)... If a cruise ship has free cards laying around.. I will have found them within 30 mins of boarding... and Scuba.... S.C.U.B.A.... I love diving... which brings up an interesting story

Went Diving in Puerta Vallarta couple years ago... with my father, my brother, and one of our traveling buddies... and a dive master from Germany who was quite Rotund... well While we're riding out to the dive site and im fixing my wetsuit and the dive master says.. ha ha.. you wont need that the water is SOOO warm i never wear a wetsuit... come to find out he didn't wear much of anything... he in fact was only going to wear an itty bitty blue speedo... you know that song itty bitty teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini.... well if his speedo had been yellow polka dots... the song would have been about him... it was sooooo small im sure they had to sew it on him... 300 pound man... 12 square inches of fabric... you do the math... :scarred for life:

Too funny. Don't want to offend anyone here, but it seems the Europeans including the German's are more partial to Speedo "OverExposure". Where did the Speedo originate anyway? Gee wonder who has the answer to this question.

Apparently, there is an annual Holiday Speedo run in Santa Monica. Anyone ever been in this race?

Always did like Elves.

Edit: So DTW if you start a speedo run; make sure to get an elf. Please.

Great! I am glad I have you ladies agreeing that Speedos are OK. It is just a matter of on which body they are worn. We feel the same way about bikinis. Some of you girls look great in them while others should be wearing those one pieces that have the skirts built in.

It is the same with us. Some of us can get away wearing a Speedo while others cannot. When I get back from my next cruise we will see what you think....

Pics are coming up. 8)

A tip for you guys: If you plan to wear a Speedo on your cruise, first spend some time in a tanning salon. DO not wear a Speedo with a farmers tan. It is a serious faux pas!!!

I thought I had a pretty good base tan then looked at my backside in the mirrow and realized that the back of my legs were pretty white even though I had a good tan on the rest of me. I plan to get in a few sessions before I cruise.

While on the topic of Speedos, I cam across this similar subject matter in the local paper..... I haven't heard of these Camel Toads before.

TO: DTW: re Camel Toads: I can't believe that made the papers. Too friggin funny, I printed that out for my crew so they can have a laugh when they get in tomorrow am. As camel toads () are a frequent conversation for the guys.

That subject matter is a whole other thread and a whole other set of pics.

Okay, the next picture challenge is finding a camel toe in a male speedo. Then you know something really funny is going on....

No, Venice. I am not looking for the Speedo pics for myself. I am getting them for the ladies on here to enjoy.

I try to maintain a healthy base tan, it is our natural defense against the sun. But having not visited the nudist resort lately, my bum is still pretty white.

Well I'm crushed, all this time I thought you were "cool" and could hang with me at the Essence Festival next year (VBG)

Too many rays in the tanning salon give you skin cancer I'm told

It's the largest African American Music Festival in the country and is held every 4th of July weekend in New Orleans..Great music, great empowerment sessions and beautiful women ..You would fit right in because you are "cool"

AS a matter of fact DDTW..I'll get you a subsription to Essence Magazine (for African American Women) so you can continue to expand your horizons ..I read it every month and they have great articles and can give a man insight into women (regardless of color)

See Dave...isn't it nice to have cruising friends of all races, creeds and nationalities
