RNLI surf experts warn extreme sports enthusiasts


Watersport and beach safety experts from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution are issuing a warning to extreme sports enthusiasts following the release of the charity’s 2006 rescue statistics that show launches to surf sport incidents have increased by over 15 per cent.

RNLI lifeboats and lifeguards have responded to more surf sports enthusiasts (wind/kite/board surfing, jetskiing and canoeing) than in 2005 for incidents such as sail failure, man overboard, capsizes, surfers overdue, and abandoned kit.
