Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot stated that after numerous landings performed at his home airstrip, he wanted to show his new acquisition off to a friend at another private airstrip. The grass runway was, "very rough and hilly" and his landing attempt resulted in a bounced landing and porpoising that caused the wings and wing struts to deform, the nose wheel strut to fracture, and the remaining nose wheel strut stub to dig in the terrain. The aircraft sustained a nose over and the student suffered serious injuries.

Probable Cause: The loss of control on landing due to the student's improper recovery from a bounced landing, and the resulting nose over on the grass runway.
