Watch this guy execute what has to be history's worst kayak launch.

Failure to Launch 2

The YouTube video is called Kayak Launch Fail, but it's so much more than that. It's like a kayak fail documentary, chronicling one man's epic struggle against the elements, after his boat buddy leaves him stranded on the beach to get his kayak out on the water by himself. It just goes on and on. The video could be used by maritime instructors to teach students the dangers of launching a kayak on the ocean with zero boating experience, no sense of balance, and poor decision-making skills.

Watching the clip, you can't help but wonder why the guy filming wouldn't put down the camera and help Captain Slapstick launch his boat. But after witnessing the first guy go out without any problems, the cameraman must have figured the guy on the beach would eventually figure it out. Or, after several minutes of doing the opposite of figuring it out—even losing his cooler of food—he would at least have enough sense to quit before the Coast Guard had to be called.
