Fight Club on the Beach: Inside the Scantily Clad Brawls of Florida’s Spring Break Scene

/ 09:16 AM March 17, 2023

Spring break is in full swing in Florida as intoxicated college students let off some rage after isolating themselves for the past three years.

On March 15, booze-fueled revelers turned Fort Lauderdale beach into a fight club as they donned boxing gloves and staged mock fights.

Eventually, several men engaged in the punch-out before multiple women also joined the action, wrestling and tackling each other.

How is spring break going in Florida?

The COVID pandemic kept everyone indoors for the past three years. Now that the restrictions are off and everything is going back to normal, college students need to let off some steam.

They went to the beach as per regular spring break tradition to drink and party. The other ones chose more physical activities, such as football and mock fights.

That is why a TikTok video went viral, showing several bikini-clad women engaging in mock brawls with one another after football drills.

Other men took turns slamming into each other by the coastline, tackling opponents to the ground to take possession of a football as a crowd cheers.

Alice Muskey, the owner of Treats on the Beach, shared her thoughts regarding the unusual rowdiness in this year’s spring break.

She said, “Twenty years I’ve been here for spring break, and that was the first time that I’ve ever seen any serious issues.”

Meanwhile, other girls posed along the ocean and took photos, presumably to update their Instagram. 

Despite the summer fun, police officers took serious steps to ensure everyone was safe. Cops patrolled the area on buggies, SUVs, and bicycles.

The intensified preparation came after the Department of State warned Americans against traveling to Mexico.

Steven McCraw, the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, issued the following statement:

“Drug cartel violence and other criminal activity represent a significant safety threat to anyone who crosses into Mexico right now.”

“We have a duty to inform the public about safety, travel risks, and threats. Based on the volatile nature of cartel activity and the violence we are seeing there, we are urging individuals to avoid travel to Mexico at this time.”

Regardless, some spring breakers still headed to Cancun, the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.
