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.

This was gone over at CF. They ran this fella over the coals. Turns out he has taken lessons for crossing bars, and he gives an interview too........i2f

i'd rather ride a storm out in deep blue water. Even if it took several days at sea and hundreds of miles away .

While I probably wouldn't have done that... I wasn't there. He did have several things in his favor. First, his boat, Saltonay, is a fairly large catamaran and being a multihull is far more resistant to broaching than most monohulls. Second, having two engines and two rudders is also a plus in a situation like that, where an engine failure or loss of a rudder could be a disaster. Third, the captain had, as I2F points out, specifically taken training on crossing barred entrances similar to the one in the video, as the captain says here.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Worlds largest surf board?

When I compare the thrills of boating to white water rafting through serene environments like Raft ripper and Widow maker, I have to say that rafting offers a magnitude of greater probabilities for taking a drink. I will not soon forget the ambiance as Three rocks pulled us back and downward for what seemed like a full minute.

But then, it is simpler to deal with taking a whitewater drink to a broached boat.

Yea.....he is pretty ballsy.
