Should be titled "Man learns how surf works". I hope this was a joke. He only had one rod and an apparently empty cooler so possibly just a gag.

Thanks 911Tech. An older guy watching, a retired surgeon from the local hospital was there with me. He kept saying this was heavy water. I had no idea what he was talking about because I had just moved to Carmel.
Now I know heavy water is a relentless swell. Had he waited 15 minutes more the sets did settle and he could have pushed off easily. Thanks for the comment.

I watched the three fishermen unload and drag their kayaks and gear down to the beach. Decided to film the launches. The first two got off fine but this guy couldn't get it together. Perfectly normal guys and not drunk or high or anything. If you note the last few seconds he did get out to his friends beyond the breakers

That's not the point.. He was struggling and all his gear was going everywhere at least someone could of helped. And there is no where stating in your description that you are disabled so how are we to know if you are or not. I do kayak fishing and if it was like that in Australia people would of helped.. I guess its just some countries don't give a fuck and they just watch on and laugh.. I feel sorry for the guy.
mike morales

That guy, me the camera operator, is disabled. You have to appreciate he was in no danger. His friends had already launched and were cheering on his efforts. It was funny to a point. There was never a chance he was going to drown.

Clearly he needed help. This is not someone I would take out with only 2 feet of Waves. Out there you will have to keep and eye on him so not good. Geez 5 foot waves is easily done on any Inflatable Kayak so this guy clearly should not be out there as he does not have the mind set for looking out for Wave patterns, tide changes etc. 500 years ago this guy would not be allowed on any Ship Vessel.

This is exactly why you cant watch a youtube video and think you have learned how to kayak. He just needed instructions on what and what not to do.

If you would have bothered to read the threads below you would have found out I am disabled and cannot get down to the beach at that access point. If you really did watch the video you would have heard his friends just offshore yelling support to him. He was in no real danger but to you it might have looked like he was.

I would have been rolling on the ground peeing myself had I been there.

the worst place on the beach to launch. He appears to have limited experience and lacks fitness. He is a danger to himself and will use valuable rescue resources to aid in his incompetence if he ever got to sea.

mike morales

Was not drunk and is not demented at all. He was with two other friends and frankly got caught up in a couple of sets that were heavier than the ones his friends launched through. I think he was embarrassed and didn't want to give in to defeat. He did eventually launch.

Neither did the kayaker's two companions that were waiting for him just offshore. You can hear them yelling towards him if you paid attention during the video. You might be interested to know also there were others watching above the beach and a couple on the sand. He didn't need any help, asked for none and there was little anyone could have done.

Don't care whether someone is in danger or not - you see someone struggle, you go and help. To not do so is unacceptable in a civilised society. Don't film the f*cking thing for your own amusement.

As to saying it wasnt a dangerous situation - a 25 kg kayak with another 10 kg of gear, thrown around by hundreds of kilograms of water next to rocks has a hell of a lot of potential for danger. One trip and its serious head injury.

It plainly isnt true that he couldn't be helped. His rod and paddle while he beached the yak and retrieved the coolbox, or really I think just a bit of help with orientation.

I agree with some of the other posters though, with the greatest respect to people who know the star - this person shouldnt be on the sea. Plus, no paddle leash ... seesh.

Never get between your boat and the beach. The boat becomes a missile.  The last guy has it toughest, no one to steady him or give the push. Also, thigh straps help in surf, however this is not bad surf at all. I use to launch from the Jersey shore.

Yes, not too skilled but most likely more so than you. Where do you launch into the surf? Belmar, Seaside and LBI in New Jersey for me.

Did you miss the part where he was not in danger and it was not easy to get to him?  
AQUAKARROT
AQUAKARROT - 7 years ago
I agree Paco! I question the judgement of his two friends. They should have had him launch second, so he can have assistance. He obviously doesn't know what he is doing and/or incapacitated. I don't think this is laughable at all. He really could have gotten hurt badly and if anyone thinks otherwise they don't have experience. He doesn't have his PFD even zipped and with no helmet he easily could have fallen and hit his head on the rock. Not very good.
KURRICAN
KURRICAN - 7 years ago
He is not "very" capable as you can see in the images. He received heavy blowes from his kayak, he was very stunned after, and you can see he is not all right. He doesn´t know the correct technique to go out the sea with waves, and he doesn´t look phisically well for this sport. This images is most serious as you can see. And I know very well about I talk.
mike morales
mike morales - 7 years ago
+Paco Ramos Calderón I disagree. His two compatriots were watching all of this just offshore and within easy reach if he found serious trouble. I am disabled to the point I could be no help. He was never in danger of being swept out to sea. I spoke with this man before he portaged his kayak down to that spot. He is about 60 years old and very capable. Not drunk at 9:00 am here and as you can see after all he made it out to his friends........eventually.
