An extremely rare footage of ‘tidal race’ was captured in King Sound, Western Australia.
This amazing phenomenon only happens a few times a year and produces waves as high as 12 metres and whirlpools up to 762 metres across.
A lucky Australian jet skier, Tybias Smith, 26, was fortunate to witness the rare phenomenon when he went for a jet skiing at the ocean
The footage is believed to be the first captured of someone riding the rare and huge tidal race
Smith can be seen riding on the crest of a wave while being chased with a series of waves
Even though it may look harmless and serene, the huge tidal race is actually dangerous and requires an expert knowledge for one to ride on the waves.
