He bought the engagement ring – white gold with diamond – five days before his marriage proposal and hid it in the toolbox of his car
Miss Waryszak was introduced to flyboarding by her fiancé, who also performs outside of his lighting business.
He said, “I had thought about applying for a while, but had hardly told anyone when it was going to happen.
“My father knew and had the ring in his pocket on the pier. Kasia was overjoyed. It was great.’
The couple from Paignton, Devon have been together for three and a half years.

Miss Waryszak said, “I had a hint that he was going to do something because for the past few weeks he has been asking: Do you still love me? I think he made me say “yes”. ‘
He bought the engagement ring – white gold with diamond – five days before his marriage proposal and hid it in the toolbox of his car.
They haven’t set a date yet, but are planning the wedding in their home country Poland in May or June next year.
Flyboarding involves performing tricks like backflips with a water jet backpack strapped to your feet.
The flyboard rider stands on a board that is connected to a watercraft by a long hose, in Mr Prestwood’s case a 300 hp Sea-Doo jet ski.
Water is forced under pressure into a pair of boots with jets underneath that give the rider thrust to fly up to 60 feet in the air.
Mr. Prestwood competes and performs at shows and weddings.
“Love Novel” was the second of three screenings – including one at night with fireworks – that he performed in Dartmouth on Saturday.
