Big ocean waves crashing - stormy sea - Western Cape coast South Africa - HD 1080P

246 ratings | 45540 views
Extremely rough seas with very big crashing waves along the Western Cape coast of South Africa accompanied by strong wind and approaching storm clouds. Filmed in Rooi Els, near Cape Town, South Africa. On the day I filmed this, the waves were peaking at between 20 & 30 foot (6 - 9 meters) which made for a very dramatic scene of crashing and tumbling water with swirling spray... wave watching heaven! :) Hope you enjoy the video as much as I did filming it.

This is so fascinating. I have always been mesmerised by the sea and almost every night I dream of huge seas. I never learnt to swim. When I was 13, I went to stay on an uninhabited island for a month with a classmate's family. The island was in the shape of a 'C' and there was a huge calm lagoon held inside it. But on the other side, the windward side of the island there was a higher shingled beach on which the sea crashed onto the reef. I would sit on this shingled beach and watch the sea from a safe distance, ever so scared and yet unable to pull away. I would count the waves and I was told that each 7th wave would be a bigger one and indeed it was! This video reminded me of that time. I enjoyed this especially high quality video very much and so thank you very much.

Yes, I just wish the sound was better in this video. The wind was very strong, but still nice to watch the incoming storm and waves. I'm so glad you enjoy my videos so much and that they help with your meditation. Thanks for your messages, they really make my day. :)

Why would someone dislike this. It's perfect. I live near the sea and although this is a completely different part of the world to me I can't take my eyes of it. Even the grey sky. I love a grey sky. It speaks volumes to me. Thank you.

Probably because they lost a loved one in a horrific coastal waters accident. Or maybe it reminded them of a recent suicide attempt where they contemplated throwing themselves off the rocks. It's widely accepted that in some instances of a depressed state, the soporific sight and sound of the sea, as depicted here, will encourage feelings of desolation and reaffirm feelings of isolation and pending catastrophe . Or maybe it's just accidental. There are many reasons, I suppose.

+Margaret Davies thanks so much for your kind comments! I'm so glad you enjoyed my video so much. :) I also love the ocean when it's moody and full of atmosphere. It's hard to put into words but I guess it feels like the elements are coming together and you can sense something brewing. It can be awe inspiring because it reminds one that the ocean is still a wild frontier beyond our control. It's also one of the rare occasions that you can enjoy quiet and solitude on popular beaches.

+Offbreed76 Thanks so much! I love wave watching in this area. Just very windy, which complicates filming a bit as you know.

Wow, those were some very dramatic crashes! Love when the water flows through the crevices of the rocks after contact. You were almost up close and personal with that storm, I'm surprised you camera wasn't shaking...you have awesome control or a very strong tripod.

+Peaceful Scenes You are most welcome...and very smart...Stay wise :)

+charlieseable Thanks for your blessing! I'm not that brave actually :) I'm always very careful not to position myself in a dangerous spot and always make sure there is an escape route behind me. I also watch the scene for at least half an hour to see how far up the largest waves can reach and stay well clear of that zone. I would recommend wave watching to anyone, but agree that a healthy respect for the ocean's power is very important. Thanks as always for your kind words!

+Peaceful Scenes It is amazing how all things work together and do what they do in nature. I guess the creatures of the sea probably survive a storm pretty much the way we do. You are brave to go out and capture that magnificence, and I thank you for it...may God always be with you and shield you while you continue to dazzle us with the beauty and mystery of His world.

+charlieseable Hi! Thanks. Glad you like it :) I also love the upright rocks in the foreground and how the waves force their way through the crevices. Imagine how much pressure and turbulence the creatures that live on the sides of those rocks endure all the time and thrive under these conditions. What I really love about the waves in this video is how the mist swirls around as the waves curl and are pulled apart by the wind all against a dark background. I use a pretty old standard tripod which is usually good enough, but I sheltered next to the big boulder on the right so the full force of the wind was not on me.
