Solent Coastguard tasked Hayling Lifeboat to attend a Kitesurfer reported in trouble by a member of the public just off the Inn on the Beach Restaurant. When the lifeboat arrived on scene they found a surfboard in the water but on returning the board to the beach it became clear that this was not the casualty we were looking for.  After a search the Lifeboat crew came across and spoke to another boarder and from the original description realised that this was who they were looking for, but he was not in need of assistance. The Lifeboat then returned to the Lifeboat Station.
