I might be tempting fate for my next kayak trip by posting this video, but check this out for things NOT to do when launching your ‘yak at the beach.
The poor guy really never makes it off the sand before the boat capsizes, dumping his gear and ice chest overboard.
He apparently never got the message about staying perpendicular to the waves, or walking your boat in a ways before climbing aboard.
Be sure to watch through the :40 second mark, when things get worse - if that’s even possible.
If nothing else, give him credit for being determined... Although he appears so happy to finally get going at the end, he decides to leave without his ice chest.
