DetailsTenby's RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch at 3.30pm on Tuesday 13th August after the Coastguard received several 999 calls reporting that a kitesurfer appeared to be in difficulty off Tenby's South Beach.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and the volunteer crew made their way to the reported position of the kitesurfer.

After a quick chat, it became apparent that the kitesurfer was not in trouble and was just testing out some new kit so the crew stood down and returned to station.
