Kite surfer hitches a ride on a paddle board.

Date : Sunday 22 April

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

We launched the lifeboat following a call that a kite surfer was in trouble and had packed down his gear but hadn’t moved for about 3o mins. We went to a position off the Hayling Funfair and found the kite surfer on a paddle board together with the paddle boarder who was rescuing him. As they were making good progress we escorted them ashore and the local Coastguard took charge of the kite surfer.
