I was surprised to see you publish a photograph of a young man with a surfboard jumping off the north jetty of Boynton Inlet Pier — “taking advantage of the waves created by Hurricane Ian.”
Most years report deaths at the Inlet and one can imagine stormy seas being more dangerous than normal. Posted all over the pier and adjacent bridges are “No Jumping or Diving” signs.
I understand a photographer wanting to capture and share the sheer exuberance of the moment, but at least publish a disclaimer or warning that this is dangerous and possibly illegal behavior.
The last thing we need is a young person hurt or worse from their youthful exuberance.
