    They got caught in an inlet? What does that mean, there's only one inlet.

    Interestingly, only the surfer had a full body floatation device attached to him, the courageous guards each had a bouy and a mind full of foolhardiness. Basically, I suspect the Coast Guard rescued the guards and the "surfer" (if indeed he actually qualifies as a "surfer") somehow gave guards a reason to panic. We all have choices to make, so make them wisely, not out of a sense of bravado.

    Great journalism. They got "stuck in an inlet".

    probably sucked out at the inlet... I had a near death experience years ago fighting the rip pulling me out to sea at that inlet. Gave it all I had to stay in the lineup. Like I was on a treadmill from hell. Overhead easy and so dumpy you couldnt even bodyboard these things. closing out the inlet. Realizing it was a poor choice to be out and in rising surf, I got picked up by one (forgot how) and thrown like I was doing a backflip.. headfirst right next to the jetty. On way down I thought I was going to die.... came down right next to rocks... feet away from rocks and paralysis. The next wave coming I had to bodyboard with my surfboard (things were not rideable) as I was in the impact zone... had to ride it to the right or end up riding the rocks in VAS storm surf. I got down the face and steered right as not straight into the rocks and made it in ...one of those times you end up crawling from the lineup rather than walking.

    Once in high school during a January noreaster I was in a friend's boat going somewhere near there, and he decided it would be fun to do a few circles in the inlet. Engine stalled just as a wave feathered across the mouth of the inlet. Wave didn't break and I didn't die.
