Padstow lifeboat crew launched at 3.35pm (21 October 2021) to reports of four surfers in the rip at Treyarnon.
Whilst our volunteers were on route the surfers had managed to get to shore.

Once on scene the crew carried out a search to Porthcothan and back to ensure no one else was in the water.
The lifeboat remained on scene whilst Padstow Coastguard administered first aid to the surfers on the beach and paramedics were also on scene.

Padstow RNLI crew were then stood down and returned to the station, refuelled and ready for service by 4.30pm.
