DetailsTenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched into rough seas at 2pm on Friday 6th November, after a surfer got into difficulty off Rhossili Beach on the Gower, 18 miles south-east of Tenby.

The volunteer crew made best speed towards surfer’s last known position, as Coastguard Rescue Helicopter 187 and Burry Port Lifeboats began to search the scene.

With Haydn Miller only a mile from station, news came through that the surfer had been found by the helicopter and picked up by Burry Port Lifeboat and was now ashore.

The lifeboat was then stood down and returned to station, arriving at 2.30pm.
