OLD TOWN, Fla. (WCJB) -

While other counties in North Central Florida are still addressing flooding issues, that hasn't stopped some people in Dixie County from having fun.

What was an inconvenience for many turned into an opportunity to...well, go surfing. Obviously.

Dixie County resident Ty Smith was seen "catching some waves" along State Road 349 in Old Town.

This video was taken on Sunday and posted to Facebook with the caption "Ditch Surfing in Dixie"

The video was taken by Smith's aunt, who also lives in Old Town.

Emergency management and county officials advise against playing or coming in contact with floodwaters or stormwaters in any way.
