Nope, we're not even joking.

Turns out, superheroes are real. 

Who knew?

A kite surfer who got into a spot of trouble after being dragged across the beach and into the English Channel, was saved by none other than… BATMAN AND ROBIN.  

*Insert an attempt to sing the Batman theme tune here*

But on a serious note, David Schneider and Derren Guile were kayaking in their costumes for a Superhero Paddle (which, FYI, we want to be a part of immediately) when they spotted the victim.  

Batman and Robin save a drowning kitesurfer

The pair paddled over to the man who was struggling to take control of his kite at Shoreham Beach in West Sussex. They later said that the kite surfer looked ‘gobsmacked’ that he was being saved by two superheroes.

Well, it’s not exactly a standard day at sea, is it?

David, aka Robin, commented, “We were out in the water having a bit of fun and I noticed this kite surfer had got into a bit of trouble. His kite was in the water and he was being dragged across the beach. I probably watched him for about ten minutes and thought ‘he’s not getting that back up’, so I paddled over, obviously dressed as Robin and called my comrade to help me.”

Upon reaching the victim, Robin… sorry, David… said that “he was gobsmacked when we turned up. He just looked round and said ‘oh no’.”

Finding the funny side of things, David made a joke of the situation and added, “It’s not every day that Batman and Robin come to save you is it?”

But we also need to address the hilarious parallel between this situation and a certain Christmas episode of Only Fools and Horses. 

David added, “Obviously I’ve seen that famous Only Fools and Horses episode, someone even put a photo of Del and Rodney on my Facebook page. We didn’t come out of the dark or surrounded by smoke like them but we were obviously dressed the same way so it was similar”.

What absolute HEROES.
