Video: Florida Freeriders Take On Florida’s Monster Hole


For those who don’t believe that Florida is completely void of any decent big surf have never traveled to the Sunshine State’s Sebastian Inlet. There they would find what the locals call “Monster Hole.” The long left-hand break is created by a shallow rocky sandbar nearly a quarter mile offshore, producing average 4-to-6-foot waves with big days topping 8-feet with ease.

The area is also notorious for its many rip currents and its shark population. Not exactly the spot for beginners. Between the sandbar and the beach, the wave is considered one of the most powerful on the East Coast. If it sounds intimidating, that’s because it is. And that’s what made it so appealing to the Florida Freeriders who met up with some southeastern Florida riders to test their mettle on what many called “An OK day.”

Below is a video of their shenanigans, including plenty of nose stabs, barrel rolls, a backflip or two, and some sensational bailouts. Y’know, the usual stuff you’d expect from some hardcore freeriders. Big thanks go out to James Ross for putting together this footage for all of us to enjoy!
