Target fixation? The rider couldn't stop looking at the hazard, so he couldn't do anything except ride into it.

I've seen a spare tire fall off the flat bed of a medium duty truck.

Don't follow too close.
Always have an escape route.
Look at the safe route around a hazard, not at the hazard.
ATGATT...wear All The protective Gear All The Time. I've heard that skin grafts are extremely painful.

I watched that video 3 times. The rider is very slow to react to whatever that is falling off the boat. That thing was dragging for 2 seconds before he even applied his brakes as it fell off. He could easily have avoided it.

From what I read elsewhere he's very new to bikes (obvious watching this).

Following too close. Strike one.

Target fixation / no plan. Strike two.

Wearing shorts. Strike three.
