Type of Incident

While trying to preform a Landing maneuver at Beach Blast16 , I believe I created my own demise by several factors. 1) My altitude , Too low. 2) Grabbing the wrong Steering apparatus. 3) Intimidated by the amount of spectators at the LZ. I tried to preform the landing that Jeff Goin created Titled; BB Flying Tips (Video) to help pilots in this wind direction scenario. Things didn’t work like i tried, outlined above.
