NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that he was landing on a gravel bar. He made one full stop landing, and took off for a second landing. The winds were light, and he attempted a shorter landing. The wheels contacted the 1-foot-deep water about 30 feet before reaching the landing zone. The airplane pitched forward; he applied full back stick pressure and added power. The airplane nosed in, resulting in substantial damage to the wing and fuselage. The National Transportation Safety Board was notified of the accident on August 25, 2008.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's misjudged altitude, speed, and subsequent failure to attain the proper touchdown point while landing.
