Can't blame the guy who went surfing, can we? He had no choice but to surf in bad weather when no lifeguards were on duty. Mother Nature should learn to calm down when people go surfing in the middle of November. It wasn't his fault because he was such an amazing person who would have given you the shirt off his back and light up a room with his smile.
Please, let's not judge his decision to surf during a storm, but blame everything else.

How long before his family sues Rockaway Beach for not doing enough to save this guy from his own stupidity?

I believe I read somewhere that he was NEW at surfing. AND anyone with a brain knows that the currents are worse near jettys. Sad.

New to surfing but apparently experienced at stupidity, a deadly combination.

There's good risks and bad risks when it comes to surfing. After you've been at it a while the bad risks seem fewer and farther between with your skill increase but the ocean is unmerciful. One mistake is all you need. I feel really bad for the guy, but he went doing what he loved, better than getting hit by a bus I guess.
