Steve Hyma and Dan Wright: friends for life (Photo: MW Journal Sentinel)

Kiteboarder Steve Hyma was rescued by surfer Dan Wright in Lake Michigan.

The 23-year-old Hyma was caught close to the rocks south of Bradford Beach, after a wave knocked his kiteboard.

The fellow surfer was getting ready to hit the wave when he noticed something was wrong.

When Wright reached Hyma, he had the kite lines tangled up around his legs and was very cold due to a wetsuit full of water.

At the same time, the US Coast Guard was called but they've managed to get to shore safely.

No one was hurt, but things could have gone bad.

Remember that it is not safe to go surfing alone. Call a friend and enjoy the ocean together.
