If you click on the title of my post, it'll take you to a classic definition of 'stupidity.' Too bad someone had to die.

The follow-up on this story is one person, a visitor to the Great State of Florida, died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident. The other surfer was unhurt.

So, the Preliminary Report was just that...
