So many people coming to grief in the ocean, yeah? Year after year. What happened to the nanny state? Shouldn't there be a law keeping people away from rough water? Right! Thinking about lolo lifeguards here and there who have to do their power thing about soome of us who've been going danger places since before had lifeguards. Life is risky. Glad the guy's alive. E hele kakou ma ke kai, no hoi!
