Both pilot-rated occupants were uninjured. Visual meteorological conditions existed at the time and no flight plan had been filed.

The pilot-rated owner was occupying the forward seat and was not endorsed for tailwheel operations. The pilot-in-command reported that while on rollout after landing on runway 16, and while rolling out about 20 mph, a gust of wind from the left caused the aircraft to turn left. He stated that full right rudder was ineffective. He then applied brakes and the aircraft nosed over. He noted that the brakes on the aircraft were very sensitive.
