Video: Surf Jet Ski Rescue Team

In keeping with our surfing film Friday theme, explore.org shot a great short documentary about the jet ski rescue team that go out and rescue surfers and swimmers caught in a tight spot.

Film description:
At Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu, epic waves mean epic rescues. Charles Annenberg Weingarten hits the waves with the Terry Ahue, President of the Hawaiian Water Patrol, and learns firsthand how struggling surfers are brought to safety. When the waves are at their biggest, Hawaii's jet ski rescue teams are at their best.
