SA Police Are NOT Happy With Flood Thrillseekers

South Australia's damaging storms and wild weather has left some locals looking for a thrill. 

Multiple videos have surfaced online of people riding kayaks, rubber rings and inflatable boats in choppy, fast water.

One clip shows two men being flung from their kayaks and into the water of the River Torrens at Lockleys.

Both men were inexperienced with water activities and lacking in safety equipment. 

As a result, South Australian Police have issued a warning to thrillseekers caught on camera playing around in dangerous, flooded waters.

According to ABC News, "police state the men put themselves at great risk as the river was flowing very fast and the water is full of hidden debris including tree branches, logs, and other rubbish."

"The public are advised to stay well back and not enter fast flowing rivers and floodways."

At a flooded Fleurieu Peninsula vineyard, a group of friends with a wakeboard have also made a video that has gone viral on the internet.

“We didn’t have power so we decided to go outside and hit the water,” Langhorne Creek local Luke Cooper told The Advertiser

Meanwhile, another group of South Australians took their wakeboards next to some Barossa Valley vineyards.

Do you think it's all a bit of fun, or are these people taking thrillseeking too far?
