I am Good : i want that thing as a toy!!!!!!!!!!

James Wilkins : Not click bait, and straight to the point, and I learned something throughout the whole video without having to wait for the very end. The rest of YT could learn a thing or two instead of wasting people's time. ;)

Boxhawk : Should have put tiny figures on the wall getting swept away to represent idiots watching waves during storms.

Mohamed Y : the best video on youtube straight to the point im not an engineer but watched it to the end

Me me : Using mililiters. Appreciated.

Brace Daigo : nice job, awesome

BENJAMIN REINSAL - 210 : If you make the stepped revetment higher, you get different result.

Ribou Maras : cool science. I like science

Jon Maravilla : who was just waiting for that red button?

Rep van Venrooij : Dont put effort in this just call the netherlands

Kyle Li : When I first started watching this video, I thought it would be some boring engineering jibber jabber and not cover anything, but the results actually were super interesting and I felt like I learned something new... will definitely be looking at beaches far differently now!

Brooks Matetich : This video gave me asmr.

Jaime Smith : Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat! Mind blown, so interesting!!

seth jonsson : What happens if you use a stepped slope with the recurve feature for each step?

Santi Clash : keep up the good work

Pradatoru : You have too much water in the tank to test some of the defences

Splash : wholesome video, wholesome comment section, this is the good part of youtube

Sploof Mcsterra : I didn't realise I was interested in this.

Brem : 10:07 "It's always not the best option." I'm sure its the best option some time.

Necator O : I did not expect the recurved wall to work that satisfyingly well. :o

Rod Mac : Thanks ,I learned a lot.

陈嘉驹 : if you make the stepped revetment higher, you would get a different result

Vincent Boot : Or just hire the Dutch :')

Cody Briscoe : Ideally you'd just have the recurve wall with the offshore thing as well.

Jamie Burnett : I would still pick the recurve wall because it preforms well, the rock armour as u said completely decimates the practicality of the beach as they had done at my beach ( hawker beach in Mt Martha ), also if u did the under water arc it would stop surf at certain beaches. Just my thought

Michael Rhodes : what's wrong with oyster growth on a rock revetment?

Eric Dolan : great information thank you! rocks lol! vertical walls for me only please !!!!!

CombraStudios : the water was corrupted for advertising

Momentos De Mohr : Awesome!!! Excellent video!

rpl palacio : how about trying a recurved step and wall system

Macr Jacr : Just remove the water

Uros Jandric : I guessed the slope one

Batman Dude : Does it matter where the off shore slope is to the land?

Justin Herzog : Brilliant...one of the most interesting, descriptive, “edutaining” videos I’ve ever watched!

Felix Millhouse : Why did seeing the comments make me happy, I thought because people were saying it was wholesome people would be toxic.

Moody Shaar : This is so genius

clickblol : Nice work!

super tigers : So awesome

Aloísio Vilas-Bôas : youtube probably thinks that I'm the type of people who make "storm in a teacup"

JIIM : Really good information. I loved it.

MWBgaming : When your'e dutch: build a dam you stupid🙂

Johann von der Becke : You look like a guy from a film called primeval

Hexagram Photography : Not a completely fair test since you covered some of the defenses , ie the conditions for the test due to the displacement of the modules didn't seem to get taken into account

ArcadeAndrei : Anyone else notice the whole set up is on a ladder

Dylan Chartrand : When was this vid made?

Rajani Vyas : best video very innovative video keep it up dude good man!

AKSHAY THIRUKUMARAN : wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww but not to good kidding i love it ]

Callum Jenkins : when you look at the amount of water there is more

Patrick Fynn-paul : with the dike and the stepped revetment they got bd results because there was no beach in front of it and the rock wall would'v done better with a beach

Rajani Vyas : i have also watched it till end
