Parallax : I don't even know why this was a suggested video for me, I saw how long it was, and thought 'Nah I'll probably close it after 30 secs' - Here I am at the end of the 12:22 wanting more experiments. Really good video and interesting for someone who had no prior interest in this.

InstaSound : I guess I'm interested in coastal defence now

Ya Lai : whats wrong with oyster growth

Eric Mumford : What a cute millilitre cup

roblox is cancer : *OCEAN MAN,TAKE ME BY THE HAND*

Viki B : It's late...why am i watching miniature scale coast defence video? i don't even live by the coast.

coolterminator99 : WE NEED A BIGGER WALL -Trump

ALMCrafter : What happens when you use all defenses at the same time! OVER POWERED!

Chris Peters : The Netherlands learned this more then 1000 years ago to be honest.

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!

Flow Graphics : I don't know how I got here but I don't want to leave

ALMCrafter : Who watched til the end cause its really Satisfying?

Michael Pugh : Good concept, but I was disappointed in how inconsistent the experiments we're and how the defenses were only put up against 1 type and size of wave, not a variety to ensure it's quality in other enviroments

Gandalf for President : I M P R O V E T H E S I T U A T I O N

James W : 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. ;)

WinterCraft : or simple.. don't build so close to the beach...

Fabricio Sasaki : There are several problems in this experiment: The ladder was below sea level, different from the actual photo itself. Anything you put above sea level will have better results than the reduced version below sea level. It is necessary to keep the scale of the objects. The submerged near-shore breakwater in the photo appears with the top above sea level and in the experiment is fully dipped below sea level. An 8-year-old would realize that. Not to mention that the bigger the volume solution impacts the sea level because the model is very small, in real life things do not work that way.

yessir : this might be a stupid question, but lets say you used the curved wall and the rock armour, would that allow an almost 100% defense? or would rapid change in movement from the wave hitting the armour cause the path of the water to slip up and over the curved wall? just curious

PaulveloGaming : For the slops you did a big mistake. The slopes are already underwater and shouldnt

Crazyjarry : What about putting the slope away from the wall so it crashes and loses a lot of its energy

SSJ Rose Jake : Anyone thinking "Just build a bigger wall."?

EvRGrN EvRGrN : This also proves the Earth is flat!! Water always finds its LEVEL!!!

Louis Suguitan : Try the recurved wall with sloped revetement, rock armor and submerged near-shore breakwater all together

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

Jassius Clay : Just pray everything gonna be alright dude 😂

shrek on ice : this guy is definitely a virgin

Reece7455 4 : Soooooo satisfying

Simon Hren : I have no comment. I am shocked by this magnificent present-ation.

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

Do you know da wae? : I'm satisfied after watching this :)

Jack Delian xD : The last example together with the curved wall would be impenetrable. Cool :D

Safwan Hossain : *UGH, not sure why this was recommended* BUT THAT WAS COOL

Caide Wright : 2:05 you’re welcome

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

Keyword 65 : 4:54 - 5:00 Just how bad this video is.

CrazyNinjaMike : What if we just take Bikini Bottom and push it somewhere else!!

DrownedInGames : I really wanted to see what would happen if the slope was facing the other way.

Crazy Mac : what a lier he is

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

Collin Pylar : Why do I find something like this so interesting

rer zaz : 5:49 video starts here

BlackAllegro : This video is pretty cool

Dilsher Singh : why am i watching this I should stop wasting time

Skylar Teri-Savage : sir I just want to see the splashy splash

Alvin Taufik : Nice metode,but how tsunami water impact,.its just work

latensi : They are lying to us. Check 6:00 - 6:22 to see how the measure cup is really almost empty but when he picks it up it's nearly full

Crazy Mac : i cant see the water that fills the tiny glasses

MultiKorven123 : Why nog just make a C shaped wall, the waves just loop around the top and return back to impact the next wave

christ our savior : Is the on sale

Lev Kniazev : Smart. Lol
