YOUR STORY: Saved by local surfer at Flat Rock
Sunday morning I took my young son Levi 7 years old who is learning to surf for a surf at Flat Rock point.
Levi is not a strong paddler so I generally have to push him onto waves.
New to the area we found ourselves in trouble with a strong undertow and caught in a rip.
I got Levi to try and paddle to shore while I tried (with no luck) to swim in.
That's when "Lochy" a local young surfer came to my aid and tried to get me back in.
We struggled for a while and another older surfer also came to our aid and managed to get us back to shore.
I can't thank these guys enough, particularly Lochy.
If it weren't for his help I'm not sure what the outcome might have been.
Thanks a lot guys, you are legends!!
