This guy I know got himself into a situation where he ran out of beach and ended up using some water to get in the air. It was his first experience with water so he kept the plane at his typical short field attitude (tw just off the ground) which worked. He said it was pretty exciting and he isn't interested in doing it again anytime soon but he wants to know what the proper technique is.
