Some places inarguably are, or should be, no cell phone?zones ? like movie theaters, restaurants, White House briefings, or the driver's side of a moving vehicle. Then there are dead spots that make reception impossible, like high in the mountains (or in certain parts of New Jersey).
I would've thought ?on the water? would make it on at least one of those lists, but I was dead wrong.
Apparently, when totally righteous dude and Gulf Coaster Sterling Spencer was hitting the waves off the coast of Mexico, he thought it was an excellent time to chat with his girlfriend.
?I was talking to my woman at home,? Spencer said to Surfer Magazine. ?She didn't believe me at first; I actually hung up on her cause it was barreling so hard I didn't want to fall and lose the phone...All we talked about was that we couldn't believe I?m in Mexico, on a phone, talking while surfing. Bizarre...the reception was good actually, other than crashing waves in the background.?
That's a lot of conversation for what looks like a couple seconds of talk time, according to the vid below (parts of which he filmed himself with his phone cam).
No word on the make of the mobile, but needless to say, it was waterproof.
