Hotel-bound tourists got some free entertainment watching an unknown kiteboarder jump over a massive pier in Reddington Beach, Florida, last week during Tropical Storm Debby's onslaught. (To survey the storm damage check out this clip titled "Debby does Florida.")

This is far from the first time a kiteboarders has boosted a pier, but under gray, stormy skies and choppy surf, it's still pretty impressive. If he'd botched it we'd all be calling him a fool, and this video would have about a million more page views that it currently does (600k and counting), but, as the brilliant videographer surmises, "He's obviously a professional."
