That is at my front door. It defies the tide charts often so you cant always plan to be at the seaway at the turn of the tide - and once committed, you cant turn around. However, I bet this guy is sorry a film crew was around. This is obviously with the tide roaring out the seaway. The water gets deeper so the swell will peter out, so if the film continued, it would look OK
I surfed in last time in the dark at 9.00pm. It was nowhere as interesting as this guy's trip, but if needed, I could have turned on the full 100HP and zipped ahead or sat between the breaking waves. I only attempt it very close to the full or low tide - not like this guy. It would have been safer to wait 3 hours for the tide to finish moving, even if that meant a night crossing (like I did)
BTW guys, I feel that this is the safest bar crossing on the east coast of Oz.
