Would you take a RIB out here?

I don't think I would venture out in this surf http://morrobayphotos.com/uscg/USCG%...s/image12.html the surfer is mad enough until you spot the boat behind. I did think it was a paintshop job but it's worth looking at all the pics from the first page http://morrobayphotos.com/uscg/USCG%...ion/index.html

And you thought it was always easy boating in California. We used to have a sailboat in Morro Bay and saw those kind of conditions often. Thankfully, usually from inside the harbor, but did get caught out once and witnessed a large whale watching boat punch through a wave causing him to get completely airborne and loose several passengers into the water. The boat survived and thankfully there were lots of injuries but no deaths. We were outside the harbor counting sets and trying to get in when we saw the other boat coming out and get hit by a huge wave. It was one of the most awesome sites we have experienced on the water.

There are lots of pictures of boats exiting the harbor, including a famous one of a boat belonging to George C. Scott, but they are all taken from inside the harbor or land so you see the front of the wave. It's very different seeing it from the back side.

Its been a few years since we moved, but other than our Navy Seals training in Hurricanes we never saw any RIBs. I want to have another shot at with the Ribcraft.

if you go on youtube and put in USCG in the search it will come up with a few videos of these boats in action.
The one taken from aboard is impressive..

Surf looks to be about double over head so pretty normal surf conditions really even for the UK.

This is Jodie at the 2005 kneeboard surfing nationals at Fistral thats right a girl. I wouldn't take my boat out through it though. I suppose the coasties have to be ready to go what ever the conditions.

Not too keen to take the RIB out in that.

I think I'd want Nasher's self-righting rib for seas like those
