    Have you ever saved someone while surfing?

    The kid was smart, he stayed outside the guy he was rescuing. And brave.

    Crazy video. Still amazes me that you don't need a legit licence to pilot a boat. Unfortunately the guy driving the boat lived to pass on his dip**** genes.

    First of all, whoever write the article is an idiot. That boat was totally capable of handling those waves, the captain was not! He was coming in hot and that is what capsized his boat. Another thing, kudos to the kid, but the capt was swimming just fine, he would have made it to sure without the kid. I am not taking anything away from the kid, he paddled over and pushed his board to the guy and that was great!!!

    Also, was this whole thing set up? Why was there a drone exactly over the scene focused on the boat? Why was the kid sitting out near the end of the rocks where there was no surf. The gov owed this kid something, so they set this up to make the kid a hero in the public's eye's!

    If you were an alien and came to earth, where would you live?
    Jupiter of course.

    Not only is SI the go to place for medical advice, it is also where detectives come to solve cases. Genius stuff. It was probably a drill of some kind.

    Let this be another lesson, that you cannot trust anything when there is a camera involved.
