It looks like a hazy overcast day. Depth perception may have had something to do with the need for quick stop approach. It would have been safer to go around and do a normal approach. This one worked this time. I hope he doesn't make a habit of this kind of approach, it may not work out next time.

I thought it was a pretty impressive display of skill to roll her backerds on the rear wheels myself, I did assume it wasn't safe. I imagine missing your approach is something that happens on occasion :D

Rolling back on the rear wheels is frowned on, lots of ways it can go wrong. Rolling back even a few inches with the front wheel on the ground is a major no-no though. It casters freely and can easily rotate 180 degrees so it's facing the wrong way. Pull up the gear on the next takeoff and this happens....

 

Dude Where's My Gear?

Shallow and fast to an elevated pad, offshore or on the beach, is stupid. Not a lot to recommend that profile at anytime, unless somebody's shooting at you.
