Because an R2-D2 kegorator would be too obvious and a Wookie farm would be too expensive, it is with great honor and excitement, that I present to you the Return of the Jedi Skiff Party Deck-Diving Board.
If you’ve seen Return of the Jedi – you know the scene that inspired this creation. If you haven’t seen the movie, please exit out of your browser.
Summer is upon us and it’s party time. So let’s go through the checklist. You’re minutes away from being the Jedi of your local swimming pool.
- 8-pack abs. Check.
- Upper arm/shoulder wrap tattoo. Check.
- Some Rip Curl surf shorts. Check.
- $200 sun glasses. Check.
- Michelob Ultra Light. Check.
- A Jersey Shore one-liner on standby. Check.
- Manscaping. Check.
- SPF15. Check.
- Mani/Pedi. Check.
What else do you need? You’re all set for a day at the pool, young Padawan.
But like me, you’re also part geek and still reference Star Wars in every day conversations. If so, you don’t want to cannonball off any old diving board. You want to glance up and give a shout out to old R2, a wink to Princess Leiah in a bikini, and crazy eyes to Jabba the Hutt. And if there’s a light saber involved, even better. This is exactly what you need to get through a hot summer. Part VIP Lounge, part cabana, part geek chiq. Talk about a splash.
So kick back up on The Return of the Jedi Skiff Party Deck-Diving Board. Put on your Beats by Dre and spin a set, flex that conditioned tricep of yours, and don’t forget to pour out a little of your Pina Colada for your homie, Boba Fett.
This one’s for you Boba.
