Clifford Ireland, NSRI Durban station commander, said: At 18h40, Tuesday, 11th October, NSRI Durban duty crew were activated following a report from Netcare 911 ambulance services of a wind surfer suspected to be in difficulty off-shore of Addington Beach. Winds were gusting to 30 knots in moderate sea conditions. An eye-witness had called Netcare 911 reporting to have witnessed a wind surfer off-shore of Addington Beach appearing to be in difficulties in fading light but as night set the eye-witness had lost sight of the wind surfer.Netcare 911 ambulance services responded to the scene and on arrival on the scene no sign of the wind surfer could be found and Netcare 911 called NSRI for assistance. NSRI rescue swimmers were dispatched to the scene and following a brief search along the beach we found a wind surfer safe on the beach and the description of the windsurfer fitted the description of the wind surfer that the eye-witness had seen.The male wind surfer, aged approximately 25, was safe having sailed ashore as night fell and he required no assistance and we commended the eye-witness for raising the alarm.
