Lost surfboard no cause for concern | Callout #1 | 19.02.22
Sidmouth Lifeboat was paged to a report of a surfboard that had washed ashore at Clifton Beach.
As the sea conditions were marginal for the launch of the Searider and with the Arctic off service, due to the trailer refurbishment, the decision was made not to attempt a Searider launch unless absolutely necessary.
Sidmouth Lifeboat crew met with HM Coastguard at Clifton Beach, where the board was reunited with its owner.
Meanwhile, Coxswain Guy Bennett had been out surfing, so was able to monitor the surfer in question after he lost his board when the leash snapped, ensuring he was able to safely swim back to shore.
