A REPORT of a surfer who could be in difficulty out at sea led to the launch of the Tenby all-weather lifeboat, the Haydn Miller, last Tuesday afternoon (April 7).
The lifeboat was launched shortly before 1pm following a report from a member of the public that the surfer was possibly in difficulty between Giltar and Lydstep.
The lifeboat was quickly on the water and headed towards Giltar Point before starting a search towards Lydstep.
The volunteer RNLI crew soon spotted a local fishing vessel alongside the casualty. The casualty was not in difficulty, but was taken aboard the lifeboat where he was checked over to make sure he was not in need of medical treatment.
The lifeboat then headed in towards Lydstep beach, where the surfer paddled ashore at a safe location and was met by members of Tenby coastguard rescue team.
The lifeboat returned to station, arriving at 2pm.
