The station's Atlantic 85 class lifeboat, Doris Joan, was quickly dispatched to search for the kite surfer who was reported to be in trouble and unable to get back ashore.  The lifeboat crew quickly located the casualty who was by that time being assisted ashore by her brother who had also been surfing, towards the southern end of the beach.

With the lifeboat standing-by, the local HM Coastguard team, who were on the beach, medically assessed the casualty.  With no further assistance required, the lifeboat returned to station and was made ready for service.
