Shows how easy things can go wrong when you don't pay attention. We spent most of Sunday filming dolphins from the back of a 2m surf break, not the kind of place for the inexperienced.

Oh my that is a good laugh! Massive waves! Huuuuge. And a quick lesson in how to roll a rib in a barely breaking wave. Great humor. Thank you

It is easy to see how you can drift into a set of breakers. What should the cox of the rib have done once he found the breaker rolling in to him if he could not turn the rib in time?

For a start he should of been keeping a much better look-out and been more aware of the timing and size of the sets. I dare say the fact the waves were quite small gave him added confidence.

Over the weekend I had a free-diver on a shallow reef with 2m swells pushing over the reef. At times I needed to head out if a bigger one popped up. If I had been in his situation I would of run in-front of the wave before turning away from its breaking direction.

Over here in my local area we are faced with a river crossing known as a bar which almost always has swell or pressure waves near the last of the runout tide. This video shows how it can catch people out on a flat day, we always have pretty decent swell around our shorelines its here where I love to play in my rib.

I filmed this to show a calm day at our crossing
