Hi Instigator,
Those "few waves" look quite substantial to me! I ve never been in something like that yet in my oasis. It surely looks like fun. Your i12 seems to be a very stable craft indeed!

The way out was easy .. The i12 is surprisingly stable ...
but...
The way back I flipped .. twice . It is near impossible to keep the kayak straight surfing a 8+ ft wave, then you go broadside and if the wave is breaking.... over it goes..
unfortunately no videos on the way back ... i was busy...

When your camera panned over to the returning yacht, it looked like he had all he could handle. From what I read those inlets can be very nasty and this looked like one of those times!

Obviously you were well prepared -- you must have tethered yourself to the boat. Hope you didn't lose anything! 8)
