For all the sailing enthusiasts out there, this video is a stern reminder for what happens when a small fishing boat attempts to get past some surging waves.

The boat, luckily for the tiny crew of one, is safely close to the shore. Nevertheless, high waves are forming in the distance and steadily traveling to the shore. The sky is slowly turning murky and all signs visible indicate that a storm is inevitably approaching. The fishing boat attempts to take over the first wave, in which it succeeds to a degree, but the second, coming with an immense speed and force, slaps it so hard that the tiny little boat gets catapulted straight to the beach.

Imagine yourself sitting on that beach, enjoying the weather changes, feeling the breeze tangle your hair and gazing dreamily towards the horizon. You would never have guessed the strength of the ocean waves only by looking at it from the safe distance, right?

Regardless of the sailing and maneuvering skills of the person stirring the small fishing boat, there are moments and forces in nature that should never be underestimated. We seem to be forgetting that, especially when using rudimentary tools or when left to face it alone, nature is still much more grander and more powerful than man.

Luckily for everybody in this video, the boat was very near to the shore and no one was hurt or injured, only reminded of the immense strength and unpredictability of nature.
