100ft below MSA is iffy territory, let alone 1000ft. Even practising stalls, the most I've lost is about 600ft (and that was early days). Some serious inattention all up in here.
I gather it was a clear day but if the plane was in IMC, you'd consider it really careless. That shouldn't change if the conditions were clear.
