  Also tidal factor

I am guessing that where you were may also be shallow enough that things can get trickier when the tide falls. It is the opposite of what you would think if you don't know water - high tide is often easier to handle than low tide if there are rocks, or the mouth of a river. The extra few feet of water tends to cover up the really tricky parts and put them a few feet under your boat rather than on the surface with you.

Waves are one thing, rocks and waves are another, tidal flows and anything else are another. All of these take some time to learn to handle.
