Are you unable to ride the back of a wave in at Jupiter or are people just in too much of a hurry.. I realize boat attitude contributes to it also meaning bow high..

I watched that one and those waves did some weird and unpredictable things. That was just damn nasty. No PFDs.

Did he save that boat because he was good at what he was doing or because it was a cat?

To join the boating community, it is not required to earn your pay grade, just the bucks to enter, wherein lies the rub.

Those who have the wheel time are often humbled as well.
Same in Boynton. The shoaling and bars change daily.
You can be trimmed up on the back of the last elephant and come up to the bar fine and dandy.

You can also cross the bar, have all of the water fall out under you, stuff, pitch, and broach in an instant.

The tide was rushing out, he couldnt ride a wave in and stay behind it (the waves were stationary and the current was rushing out like rapids in a river). I dont think that guy did much wrong-- looked like he had the engines trimmed up, bow as high as he could get the cat, and he was was going slow and just edged up to the wave. Low freeboard/low bow height and entered what was essentially white water rapids. The wave behind him closed the gap withe the wave he was riding up and the rear got lifted and stuffed his bow. It could of been done but he wasnt that far off nor your typical Jackass that had a major screw up. Plus I give him props for turning around, gunning it and getting the water out of the swamped boat. Looks like he salvaged an almost disaster.

It's really hard to say. A mono with a high bow and a goodly amount of flare may not have stuffed at all. Once he got sideways I think the stability of the cat played in his favor.

It may be just the way the video looks, but to me it seemed that the North side of the inlet looked a lot calmer, certainly not as big waves and a whole lot less white water.

Unless you've got a really large and fast vessel you have to ride the back. Watch the wave at far right at beginning of the clip - it is moving in just fine and this is the wave he stuffs in to when it's about even with the camera. Keep watching and the wave backside would have delivered him into the inlet without even getting wet, let alone this ridiculous result.
