AN air sea rescue helicopter, inshore lifeboat and coastguard search and rescue team were involved in the rescue of a kite surfer.

Just after noon last Wednesday, the man who was about 200 meters off the short at Auburn Farm, Fraisthorpe, became entangled in his kite and lines and was drifting without control.

Bridlington inshore lifeboat was able to bring him to shore where the rescue team ensured he was alright. In the meantime an RAF Sea King rescue helicopter which was in the area retrieved his kite board and brought that back to shore.

The kite surfer, who was not local, was uninjured.
