A kitesurfer and lifeguard had to be rescued off Avon Beach on Sunday, August 10.

At around 2pm a lifeguard from Christchurch spotted the kitesurfer getting into difficulty and attempted to reach him on a rescue board. Due to the windy conditions, the lifeguard also got into difficulty.

RNLI lifeguards and Southbourne Coastguards were scrambled to rescue both the men who were brought safely back to shore.
