Mark Zuckerberg is celebrating the Fourth of July by hitting the waves.

On Thursday, the Meta founder and CEO, 40, marked Independence Day by sharing a video on Instagram showing him surfing while wearing a tuxedo and holding a U.S. flag.

Zuckerberg seemingly sipped a beer as he rode the waves while Bruce Springsteen's 1984 hit "Born in the U.S.A." played in the background of the now-viral clip.

"Happy birthday, America!" the Facebook CEO captioned the post.

His latest upload comes after he shared a similar-style video three years ago, showing him wakeboarding while holding a U.S. flag. The video was set to the tune of John Denver’s 1971 track “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

"Happy July 4th!" he captioned the clip.

Last year, Zuckerberg refrained from taking to the ocean and instead shared a cute family photo of himself posing with his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan, and their three daughters; Aurelia, now 15 months, August, 6, and Maxima, 8, on Instagram.

"Happy July 4th! Lots to be grateful for this year. As the big girls get older, I love talking to them about why America is so great. Looking forward to discussing with little Aurelia soon too," he captioned the post.

The tech magnate's wife Chan, 39, whom he married in 2012, shared a sweet post on Instagram to mark the milestone birthday, revealing that she'd organized a party and a friendly roast by his closest pals to celebrate the occasion.

"Mark doesn't usually let me go big for his birthday but for his 40th I was allowed to throw a bash as long our friends and family also roasted him. We all had a blast! Let’s just say that no one suffered from a lack of material!" Chan wrote alongside a carousel of photos.

"Jokes aside, as I reflect on the 21 of Mark's birthdays we have spent together, one of my favorite things about Mark is how he really, truly believes in people. He sees the potential in all of us. I have no idea what adventures are coming next, but I’m here for all of them. Here’s to many more ❤️," she added.

In his own Instagram post, Zuckerberg revealed that Chan had recreated his childhood bedroom where he learned to code, along with other places he lived in the early days of his career, and multiple other surprises.
