Singer and surfer Jimmy Buffett made waves on social media this week as he did what governors, mayors and emergency crews have urged the public not to do: hang out in Charleston.
Buffett was spotted surfing Wednesday on Folly Beach. He posted a photo on Instagram.
He led the post with lyrics to one of his songs, very appropriately "Surfing in a Hurricane."
He also wrote:
"On a serious note, respect mother nature, please be safe and listen to your local authorities."

Charleston resident and Instagram user chosen_sports re-posted Buffett's photo, with the following caption:
"I knew I stayed in Charleston for a reason. Jimmy Buffett is less than a few miles away from me. *Sigh* Can I just meet him already?!?! Guess we are all just trying to 'Reason with Hurricane Season.' "
Several Charleston-area fans commented on Buffett's post with concerns and advice.
"If your looking for a place to stay during the storm you got two Parrotheads up in Mount Pleasant. Swing on by @jimmybuffett!" wrote Instagram user dannyf4042.
Another user, karensuetinker, wrote, "Your Parrothead’s need you. Fins up, have a BIG TIME and stay safe."
