The student pilot was making an approach for a normal landing. During the landing flare he raised the nose too high and the aircraft ballooned. The student attempted to correct the situation by adding power and lowering the nose. The aircraft was no longer aligned with the runway and the student used the rudder to turn the aircraft. As he was completing this action the stall warning sounded. The student opened the throttle to full power, to go around, but he did not stop the aircraft from pitching more nose-up nor did he centralise the rudders. The aircraft stalled, pitched nose down and rolled to the left. The left wing and propeller struck the ground before the student could take any further action. The student turned the magneto and power switches off before leaving the wreckage. The student's inexperience was the major factor in his misjudgment of the approach and his use of incorrect recovery action.
