DetailsTenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched shortly before 1pm on Tuesday 7th April, following a report from a member of the public that a surfer was possibly in difficulty between Giltar and Lydstep.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and headed towards Giltar Point before beginning their search towards Lydstep.

The volunteer crew soon spotted a local fishing vessel alongside the casualty. The casualty was not if difficulty but was taken aboard the lifeboat where he was checked over to make sure he didn’t need 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 Team.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 2pm.
