Lifeguards were on top of their $hit for sure both on the boat and the beach. Pretty impressive on their part, not so much for the happy couple....

Human idiocy never ceases to amaze. One of the squirreliest surf breaks in the country. Not a place you want to be if you don't know what you are doing. Been in the lineup twice and is effing weird and unpredictable. The guy handling that boat was truly impressive.

"Lifeguards are adding that without the lifejackets, the pair of Jetski riders may have drowned in the large surf. They went on to say that they had already been warned earlier in the day to stay away from The Wedge and the large waves. I'd like to applaud these 2 for being the ultimate kooks for blatantly disregarding lifeguard orders and nearly killing themselves at arguably Orange County's most notorious and dangerous surf spot. Well done!"

That lifeguards and bodysurfers risked their lives to save these fools is a tribute to the bravery of the locals. That was some hairball stuff.

Looks like a couple of runner-ups for a Darwin Award.
