Earlier this summer an awesome crew of riders got together for another epic, Florida-based journey. With the help of Red Bull, Parks Bonifay, Brian Grubb, Nick Taylor and Massi Piffaretti set out with two boats and a unique idea. The gist: launch the boats in Lake Monroe, just north of Orlando, and head north along the historic St. John’s River (one of only two north-flowing rivers in the world) toward Jacksonville. Then roll through Jacksonville toward the Atlantic and Florida’s intracoastal waterway. Cruise back south toward Titusville and complete the “loop.” Along the way the guys did it all and saw a ton, and ultimately were able to experience more of Florida in a truly unique way.
For Day 4 the guys ride in historic St. Augustine, just south of Jacksonville. This is the oldest established city in the Unite States, founded in 1565 by Spanish explorers. Seeing brand new wake boats and crazy toys like an e-foil, right next to one of the oldest structures in America is pretty cool. From there they cruise south along Florida’s intracoastal waterway, heading toward their final destination in the loop, Titusville.
