Fire crews find stricken windsurfer off Maui's Kanaha Beach

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:06 a.m. HST, Jun 09, 2013

Maui fire rescue personnel assisted a 60-year-old windsurfer at sea when the mast on his board broke Saturday.

The man was reported missing by his wife around 6 p.m.

Firefighters from the Kahului Fire Station and a Maui Fire Department helicopter searched waters off Kanaha Beach Park for a half hour before locating the missing man, who was floating on his board between the wastewater treatment plant and the Maui Electric power plant.

The man, who was not injured, was airlifted to safety and his equipment was brought to shore by a rescue Jet Ski.

Why did this guy need rescuing? At Kanaha, you just paddle in or blow over to the harbor. Unnecessary rescue.
