Surfing on Rocks? This Oahu Surfer Is Fearless

Mason Ho is a professional surfer from Hawaii, so it’s no surprise that his morning sessions feature stunts like this.

One of this surfer’s favorite spots is loaded with sharp, sea urchin-filled rocks. Sound like fun? Experience it for yourself with this POV surf footage filmed by Ho himself.

If you think the rock obstacles look treacherous, they are. But apparently Ho is up for the challenge.

The video is a sweet 7 minutes of surfing the fun waves and pipes that roll off this reef break, as well as surfing into some pretty rocky shallows.

Ho shot this film on a GoPro HERO8.
