Not a RIB, but still a good boat in surf vid...

A video of just where you don't want to be in surf - although they got away this time! - just...

(The boat appears after the two surfers)

http://www.surfline.com/video/vids/2.../inside_wm.cfm

Managed to slip the anchor, get the engines flashed up, maybe a bit too much speed when they hit the 2nd wave on the nose - watch the bow man's legs fly. Probably a painful meeting of face and anchor cleat.

Will try and dig some more boats in surf if people are interested. Pretty impressive what size wave can be cleared with some good driving (and or luck)

Surfing with boats

Brilliant....

Just like we do with Redbays on the west coast of Ireland

Try it with yur anchor locker full of water as balast and the internal chamber of the hull flooded.......boat just bombs through the wave.....

Err Its bad enough being in the impact zone with a board let alone a boat, donít know why he didnít turn towards the shore to get outa it then motor out quickly when there was a break in the sets?

It was like that a few months ago at Hayle Bar great fun, a bit scary

No idea what he was doing there - anchored for lunch and a change in tide/swell direction puts him inside the surf line?

He was lucky - Despite slipping the anchor just a bit too soon but maintained just enough grip on the fairlead to get the bow through the wave.

WHAT!!!! I wouldnt like to be bailing that whaler out after that. Surely when your surfing down waves EZ there is more chance of burying and taking the tubes off

Prob what EZ means is..
Use ballast and trim the bow down for punching through the waves, ditch the ballast and trim the bow up for running down sea? As you say, bow ballast when running down sea is a good way of preparing the boat for a retubing!
