Kayaking offshore has its risks, and this is certainly one of them!
There are some videos we watch where we think to ourselves, "what the heck was that guy thinking?" Well, this clip of an offshore kayaker nearly getting slammed by a passing boat certainly has that effect.

These are the kinds of people who make being on the water not fun. What kind of jerk does this and for what reason? MyFWC
While it's unclear why this boat came so close to the kayaker, I can tell you from experience that this happens way more often than you might think. As an avid kayak fisherman, I've had multiple encounters like this that could have ended very poorly. Luckily, the boat misses this kayaker and everyone seemed to get out of there OK.
