Sure, but water weighs 7 1/2 lbs/gallon sitting still. I'm sure you can conceive of the force even a 3' wave dumping on a kayak. As confident as we all are in our equipment, I have seen a 3' wave close to shore blow VCP hatches off from a kayak and suck the paddler out of the cockpit. A conservative estimate of say, 100 gallons of water, would weigh 750 lbs. If it is also moving at a slow 3 mph that is definitely more force than a human can exert without a lever.
