Crash during takeoff on a New Zealand beach

What happens in this video ?

The Jabiru J200 microlight was forced on Mahurangi Beach (New Zealand) further to an engine failure. The plane was repaired on ground, and the pilot attempted to takeoff from the beach. Taking off from a beach requires accelerating on a hard sand: preferred takeoff strip is close to the water, where the sand is compact and wet. But this pilot took off too close from the sea, got caught by a wave, and crashed.
