Wrong Youtube titling leads to this clip apparently from a surf movie 'Endless Summer' II? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcf4aUdaG0o

I see whoever posted it on Youtube called it a Catalina.

First post by a newbe, so to follow up on the video I thought I would provide the following, if anyone is interested.

The story of the crash can be found here: http://www.portaharborinn.com/goose_crash_story.htm

The aircraft in the video was a Grumman Goose G-21A, c/n 1184, US Reg. N1257A at that time, it was later imported to Canada in May 1998 as C-GDDJ and is still flying today for Wilderness Seaplanes Ltd. a subsidiary company of Pacific Coastal Airlines Ltd., out of Port Hardy, British Columbia, Canada.

A 7½ minute flight in C-GDDJ can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdm2q-21Lag
