Hunstanton RNLI assist a kite surfer in difficulty
Friday 8th June 2018

Hunstanton RNLI Lifeboat launched to assist a Kite Surfer
At 6.30pm UK Coastguard received a 999 call from a member of the public stating that a Kite Surfer appeared to be in trouble off Hunstanton. UK Coastguard requested the launch of the Hunstanton Lifeboat to go to the aid of the Kite Surfer.
Hunstanton RNLI Lifeboat “Spirit of West Norfolk” made good speed to the area and were guided onto the casualty by the Hunstanton Coastguard rescue team. They recovered the surfer along with his gear and returned to the station. Our crew checked him over and he did not require any medical treatment. He said he was having trouble getting his kite airborne, and thanked the crew for their swift action.
