Your dead on, he backed out of the throttle expecting the wave to wash under him. He's been going out that inlet for 40+ years without any major problems, he has one now.wbvs58":j35f99sd said:I've crossed a lot of coastal bars and coming in our tactic was to sit on the back of a big wave and ride it in. I can see in his case the pressure waves from the outgoing tide caused confusion as to where the ocean wave disappeared to. He should have powered ahead instead of waiting for the wave to overtake him. Fortunately he got out of it and help was close by. Great footage though.
