The river mouth has in recent weeks (April 2017) made a hard westerly turn, a good bit of the current running straight out through the take-off terrain, steepening the wave and offering this. The rivermouth having long been schizophrehnic, this being but one of its entirely unreliable, ever-changing faces.
