Navigating breaking surf in a small open boat is best avoided, as the guys in this video were reminded all too well.

The short description posted on YouTube says they were hauling lobster traps when a big wave set took the skipper by surprise.

To his credit, he keeps the boat upright, but his buddy hanging on to the bow rail may have a word to say about the angle he chose to meet the waves.
