I grew up there. Graduated from Jupiter High in the early 90’s. We weren’t allowed in the ocean. Jupiter Inlet is narrow and can get pretty rough even when it’s not stormy out. We stayed in the river/intracoastal.
When I was a kid I was on the boat with my dad & uncle fishing snook in the inlet and the engine died. Plenty of other boats around to give us a tow in, but I remember the comments from the men about how glad they were we weren’t out in the ocean.
I grew up there, know the “culture”, lived it myself. Boys that age don’t belong on the ocean by themselves. Sad outcome.
