Surfer rescued

A SURFER was rescued off the coast of Hillarys last Saturday morning during a weekend that experienced huge swells.

Whitfords Volunteer Sea Rescue Group Commander Mark Carruthers said the group responded to a rescue call about 9.30am Saturday after the man�s inflatable boat capsized while he was surfing.

�Not long after, another vessel capsized at the entrance to Ocean Reef Marina,� he said.

Both rescues were successful and Mr Carruthers said the rest of the weekend was �fairly quiet�.
