One moment, the ocean can be calm. The next, rough waters can easily overtake you. Water patrol in Tahiti noticed a surfer struggling in the ocean and quickly came to his aid. The surfer only suffered from a scrape on his arm, but was really shaken up about the whole experience. Thank goodness the water patrol was there to help him!
