According to the pilot, he inadvertently bounced the airplane two times while performing a landing on runway 26. He elected to abort the landing and perform a go-around. The pilot stated that after the second bounce he lost his crosswind correction and the airplane departed the runway to the north. One of the main landing gear contacted the ground and dug in. The airplane rotated around 120 to 180 degrees and came to rest on its belly, resulting in substantial damage. An examination of the airplane's systems revealed no anomalies.
