And tells cops, "My gumboot slipped and I accidentally hit the accelerator."
Two months ago, BeachGrit reported on Instagram influencer Willem “Powerfish” Ungermann’s brave attempt to smash surfing’s “entrenched homophobia and patriarchal power structures” via beach theatre and Jackass-style pranks.
Willem terrorised a D-Bah line-up on his bodyboard, at one point accepting a beach fight only to drop to his knees and tell his surprised fellow duellist, “I’ll suck you dry, mate.”
Between waves, he said to one surfer “I fucked a bloke like you once”, another, “You’re lucky my dad Rex isn’t here, he’d smash your pelvis”, another, “Heard of the Bra Boys? We’re the Flatty Boys. Instead of going around bashing cunts, we fuck ’em”, another, “You know why I like surfing? When guys wear wetties and I can see their dick”, another he asks if he’s seen Ross Clarke-Jones’ cock and says, “I’ve fucking sucked it dry.”
Terrific fun and many important messages.
Now, Willem faces a fine of up to one-million dollars and seven years in jail for sinking a car and a boat in the Tweed River.
“Oh fuck! I’ve done me-self a mischief here!” he says. “So this is how the Powerfish ends, I didn’t picture it like this, fuck me! What a dog of a cunt. Oh god, this is it! Think about all the blokes I’ve fucked. I’ve got to get out of here.”
According to court documents, when questioned by police, Willem said, “My gumboot slipped and I accidentally hit the accelerator” although he has since pleaded guilty to five charges including negligently disposing of waste causing environmental harm.
