Can't believe the guy standing on the deck. Looks like he's chilling and smoking a cigarette!

Would be Ralph City for me....
Happy Boating,

I tried several times to get a GoPro video of some rough water, and the video makes the seas look so much calmer than reality.
If the video looks calmer than reality, what was it really like???

I don't know about 40 footers, but, it can & does get rough at the confluence of a river meets the ocean.
the river at the ocean is tidal effect for 15 miles or so upriver. right at the mouth of the river (coming off a high ebb) the river is flowing out with its own water plus the tide effect. If the wind is blowing into the mouth of the river it even worse.
The tides are higher on the new moon, so you could add that to the effect depending on the 'time of the month'.

Lets add up all the variables and see what could become.
1. it could have lots of rainfall upriver thus the river is high and flowing briskly
2. the river is wide and shallow (vs deep and narrow)
3. it is new moon and biggest tides
4. the river is rainfall high, and timing is at low ebb tide, therefore the river is really fast on the downhill tilt
5. the ocean tide has just come off low ebb and on the rise, thus trying to push back against the fast running river
6. the wind is blowing into the mouth of the river

add it all up and it is recipe for a really nasty inlet.

A lot of folks may not understand, but on tidal rivers and basins, there is actually a 'hump' of water on the incoming tide. the ocean pushes water into the river (against the river) and a slight hump ends up going upriver. since water levels itself it levels itself going upriver. you can 'ride the hump' so to speak if you start fishing the high tide at the mouth of river. you fish the high ebb for 15 minutes then run upriver about few miles. fish the hump again for 15 minutes. repeat the process.
Now what happens when the tide turns? All that water pushed upstream by the 'hump' gets released kinda like flushing the toilet, it can move amazingly fast going downhill.
Look up the Bay of Fundy. the bay is kinda funnel shaped and traps tidal water in such a manner that it magnifies the tidal effects from a modest 6 foot tide into 50' tide swings.

This video explains the river surf you're speaking of I think.
