Government Cut is a deep water channel in Miami, Florida. Flanked on both sides by a fang of rocks jutting out into the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Because it's so deep, it's used by freighters and cruise ships as their main point of entry and exit out of the Port of Miami. To say that it has wildly varying currents would be an understatement. A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking a jet ski out of Government Cut and into the ocean. With heavy winds howling out of the east, and water temperatures in the mid-60º F range, conditions were less than favorable. I realized this as my ski was airborne half-way out of the channel. Facing waves so tall, I couldn't see land while in their troughs and I began to sweat. I've been riding personal watercraft for years, but it was becoming quickly obvious that I was firmly in the deep end of the pool ... oh, and there was a cruise ship coming. Falling into the water, the currents would smash me against the rocks on Government Cut. Waiting too long in the channel and the cruise ship's wake would send me into the rocks. But I didn't have the knowledge of how best to drive my ski through the conditions.

I've known Jas Grocholski since college. He's a tall, blonde haired guy who is built like a rock. Despite his intimidating presence, he's friendly, he's fun, and he can get you out of trouble in a hurry. And as I sat on that jetski trying to figure out my best course of action in a quickly diminishing timeline, Jas appeared on his jet ski at the top of a wave and screamed "Follow Me." Quickly navigating the crashing waves, he safely led me out of the channel and into calmer waters. And that's the thing about Jas - no matter what sort of situation you're in, you know you'll get out of it in one piece with him around.

Jas is also a member of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Marine Division. That same division is featured on CMT's new show "Danger Coast" as part of their awesome Adventure Country line-up of shows. (That's Jas to the left in the Danger Coast logo above) So here's what you need to do. Tonight, get in front of those TVs and see just how badass Jas and his co-workers are.
