Narrative:
A floatplane Kodiak 100, operated by Setouchi Seaplane, suffered some damage during an attempted take off from the water at off shore of Beppu port to go back to its base port, Onomichi Floating Port, Sakaigahama, Urasaki-cho, Onomichi city. The takeoff was aborted due to an effect of waves, and damages on the fuselage and the (a) strut(s) between the float and the fuselage, which were found at the landing pier later. No passenger was aboard and no injuries to the crew were reported. JTSB classified this occurrence as an accident on 27th March.

PROBABLE CAUSES:
"It is highly probable that because the aircraft bounced during the takeoff run from water and received strong impact when contacting water surface, and suffered damage to the aircraft.
Regarding the aircraft bounced during the takeoff run from water, it is probable that because the Pilot conducted the takeoff run from water across the swell at the sea area existing the wind wave and swell, pitching motion was generated and the amplitude become larger along with the acceleration."
