We’ve heard of kayaking the LA River, but jet skiing? Of all the weird things to find in the LA River – phone booths, cars, swords even old saunas – this one takes the cake. KPCC’s Alex Cohen found this floating along in the Atwater Village section of the LA rive, posting these photos on Friday. While the river does pick up pace at parts, it doesn’t seem like the most ideal place to catch some wicked waves.

Other items found by Friends of the LA River during its annual cleanups includes clothes, plastic film, metal, styrofoam, beverage containers, molded plastic, and glass. Plastic Film makes up the majority of items sorted at Fletcher Drive in Atwater Village.
