Kitesurfing board ‘stolen’ from Portland beach as owner rescued from water

A kife surfboard was reportedly stolen from Portland beach as its owner was rescued from the water. The kitesurfer had struggled on the water near Beach Road and was rescued by the RNLI between 6.05pm and 6.20pm on Tuesday May 31.

The man’s board – a 54-inch Slingshot Dwarf Craft 2016 board in distinctive Rastafarian colors – washed up on nearby rocks and police said two men were seen walking away with it as that the man was being assisted by the RNLI.

Officers investigating the alleged theft of a kiteboard in Portland are appealing for anyone with information to come forward. A Dorset Police spokesperson said: ‘Officers are investigating the incident and are appealing to anyone who witnesses what happened or has information about the whereabouts of the board of directors, please get in touch.”
