Appledore RNLI launch to assist surfer in difficulty
Appledore RNLI’s inshore lifeboat was launched at lunchtime on Monday to reports of a surfer in difficulties at the north end of Saunton beach.
On scene, the lifeboat liaised with Coastguards to begin searching for the casualty. There was large surf of around 3-4metres with waves breaking a distance offshore.
While the crew were afloat, Coastguard volunteers spotted a surfer walking back towards the car park. After speaking with her it was confirmed that she had been in difficulty in a rip current but had managed to get out of the water by climbing up the rocks.
The lifeboat was therefore stood down and crew returned to station.
