The all-weather lifeboat remained on standby as the inshore lifeboat headed to the casualty’s reported location.
Weather conditions at the time were described as mild with light winds.
Once on scene, the lifeboat crew brought the kitesurfer on board for medical assessment. When it was determined that no further medical attention was needed, the casualty was brought safely back to shore.
Speaking following the callout, Ballycotton RNLI coxswain Eolan Walsh said: “We would like to commend the numerous members of the public who raised the alarm this morning for their vigilance. Their quick thinking contributed to a positive outcome for all involved.
“We reminded everyone taking to the sea this summer to respect the water no matter what their activity.”
