4:05pm Neighbor off Cupolla Drive in South Beach has spotted a riderless kite-surfboard about a 100 yards off shore. No one around it. Meanwhile, the Coast Guard is reporting that a young man called them reporting that he lost his kite-surfboard in the surf off South Beach. His surfboard equipment is blue and grey with black trim.
Arriving fire-rescue units are scanning the surf and beyond in an attempt to find anyone in distress.
Fire rescue is at the reporting party’s address.
Surfer who lost his gear arrives – looks through binoculars – yep, it’s his stuff. Will wait for wind to blow it ashore.
Units clear – head back to the barn.
