Another video from a higher vantage point (skip to 1:35) … its funny to see people shaken by the 2nd and the 3rd big foamy waves in 0.25x and I can see that the big raft takes quite an impact. Again good line and directions.
The kayak in front of the raft disappears into the foam, but would have otherwise been a nice subject in the video too. It appears after the third wave, but it has turned its direction to face the raft. Most likely on purpose, expecting a rescue.
Post that there are some smaller ones that seem more longitudinal (from the left).
So thats what they mean by waves coming from left and right. Actually, right first and then left.
Another video, looks like good line to cross golf course. The rapid in this video looks more like how I experienced it.
(More text to be added soon on this rapid)
