Daredevil Australians Surf Thrashing, Flash-flooded River

Queensland, Australia, has been pounded with crazy weather in recent days due to Cyclone Debbie. The storm created massive flash floods in the area. But there’s always an adrenaline junkie who lives for the perfect storm. In this case it was a group of surfers. 

The best part is that, because of the super-strong current, the surfers had to enlist the help of a JetSki to whip them into a wave that formed in the middle of the river.

As if this story couldn’t get any more epic (or reckless), the very same storm washed a bull shark up on shore, so you can only imagine what other Australian wildlife was beneath those very same waters. 

We suggest you get your kicks some other way that doesn’t involve natural disasters.
