Surfers are known to follow the swell and Jimmy Buffett’s no different. The Mayor of Margaritaville was spotted taking advantage of Hurricane Florence’s chop yesterday to go surfin’ at Folly Beach in South Carolina even though Charleston County was ordered to evacuate by the governor on Monday. Buffett couldn’t resist the Instagram post below to quote the lyrics of his tune ‘Surfing in a Hurricane’

Buffett did include the safety disclaimer “respect Mother Nature, please be safe and listen to your local authorities.”
