DetailsAt 8am on Monday 16th December, both Tenby all-weather and inshore lifeboats launched to resume the search for the kitesurfer reported missing the previous evening.

The boats were joined in the search by Mumbles all-weather and Burry Port Altlantic 85 lifeboats, Coastguard Rescue Helicopter 187 and land-based coastguard teams.

There was huge relief when, shortly after 9am, news came through that the kitesurfer had been found safe and well ashore.
