zunga

Zunga | Slang | A make-shift rope swing that arcs over a refreshing body of water. This is especially the case in Powell River, where the term originated. The town’s own Townsite Brewery honours the local patois’ contribution to the English language with a summery golden ale. A rite of passage for BC youth.

Usage: “I’m going to drink this delicious Zunga, then do a full backflip off that zunga…”
