    From the perspective of a fellow kayaker, I am curious to know he lost his kayak.

    I agree. Hope this man is okay.

    I paddled there yesterday earlier in the day.  There was some chop by the lighthouse that was not to bad,  but the wakes from ferries would push a set of 4-5 ft. waves through all that and it would be sketchy for a newbie.  There were paddlers in sit-on-top kayaks out there.   If one of those waves dumped your boat and you were not tethered you could end up like this person.

Sorry, comment time is over.
