What did this guy do wrong? He was lucky the water wasn't higher.

I think this guy knows what he's doing. I assume he's just having fun or did that to make the video more entertaining.

Oh I didn't say he didn't know what he was doing. I have seen a number of his videos which are all pretty good. He came back from his little fall with good humor and aplomb. He could have edited that part out but to his credit he didn't.

However it shows we all need to be cautious near undercut banks particularly when there is a good drop or the drop is directly into water.
