Yeah spent time doing this myself in the dumping surf on shingle beachs down Hawkes Bay during the rapid learning curve days :|
On a positive he must've survived OK, and been proud of it as he posted the pic on the Aussie Kayak fishing site competition :y:

I've thought about a hard hat for those "surf" days. Y'know the sort, white water kayakers use them. With my re-entry skills and crunch nut abilities probably a good investment ;(

I like technology. I especially like to hit it with a big stick!!!!

Ah...yes....much recommended for surf......esp for sit in kayaks.....being upside down and being dragged up the beach with your cheek scraping up the sand, isn't much fun...

Gravel rash is nothing(heals fine)- getting knocked out or broken neck may preclude self rescue/salvage and half a tonne of Hobie plus gear bearing down with countless tonnes of wave,know what I'd rather be in.
Those pedal mechanisms alone are over $1000 and being mechanical probably wouldn't appreciate being ground into the beach and force fed sand & gravel :worried:

Maybe he should do what I do, get just so close to shore, think, "Nah!" and leap out and wrestle your way back in looking the whole time as if you are cool and dignified
