Narrative

Several 999 calls were made after a kite surfer got into difficulty off Kinghorn Bay. The lifeboat was launched and quickly got the kite and surfer into the lifeboat. He had not suffered any injuries or was cold so was taken back to Pettycur where he had launched from. The casualty had a surf board which had a failed hydrofoil.
