Lifeboat at Normans Bay incident SUS-140804-124059001

Eastbourne inshore lifeboat was called out when a kite surfer became entangled in his equipment whilst surfing in Normans Bay.

The alarm was raised by the surfer’s wife who was watching from the shore on Sunday morning (April 6) when her husband crashed into the sea and became entangled in the kite’s lines.

She dialled 999 and spoke to Dover Coastguard who asked for the lifeboat launch. When the lifeboat arrived on scene the surfer had already made his own way ashore.
