We all know that New Year’s Eve can be incredibly romantic, but when you’re dating Michael Stagliano — the New Year’s romance doesn’t just end there.

The Bachelor nation hottie celebrated the New Year with his girlfriend Emily Tuchscherer, and while we haven’t seen any photos of their New Year’s Eve festivities, Michael did take to Instagram to share a peek at what the couple was up to on New Year’s Day.

On January 1, Michael tweeted this photo of himself, his twin brother, Stephen, and Emily on their way for an action-packed day at the beach.

She's nervous about surfing. #stayawaysharks! #illprotecther #unlessthereisagoodwave @emilytuch @stephenstag” he wrote.

It sounds like there’s never a dull moment for these two. Obviously, Michael’s time on both The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad must have given him plenty of ideas for how to plan a memorable date. There’s nothing like a bit of action and excitement to make things memorable!

Also, we’re pretty sure that the danger getting bit by an actual shark is quite minimal but we’d gladly have Michael swoop on over to protect us, either way.

Unless, of course, there was a really good wave. No need to let a silly little thing like a near-death experience make him miss out on that.
