  Look for signs in the water ...

Look for little clues in the water ... do you see little patches of white bubbles ....that means a wave has broken there recently .. more of a foam line ..then good chance larger breaking waves are going off every few minutes ... when a swell rolls through do you see rings on the water surface? That means there is a shallow reef nearby and when a larger swell rolls through it's going to break. It's doubtful the waves that got you were "rogue"waves those one in five hundred events ... you probably just were not aware of water, something you learn by paddling a lot.
