Wave researches must have heard of the FLIP (FLoating Instrument Platform) is a research vessel that can rotate to a vertical position. It is currently owned by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. But the details about the FLIP do not seem to be well known. I am thrilled to have come across this following video that's telling all about the FLIP. It is specially designed. Clearly it is not open to general public and it is certainly not cheap to do research there. The video says that it can survive waves up to 80 feet. I doubt if they have really ever encountered a real freaque wave yet!
