2 surfers rescued from ‘Backyards’ surf spot on North Shore

Lifeguards rescued two surfers at a spot called “Backyards” on Oahu’s North Shore at about 11 a.m. today.

The surfers were alright and did not need help from paramedics, according to Honolulu Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services Division spokeswoman Shayne Enright. Lifeguards, however, have been particularly busy with preventative actions.

“We do ask that people please read the warning signs and the heed the advisories from lifeguards,” she said.

So far today, Enright said there have been six rescues on the North Shore and about 985 preventative actions, with the majority at Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach parks. On Oahu’s West side, there have been no rescues but about 300 preventative actions, mostly at Makaha Beach Park. On Oahu’s East side, there have been 21 rescues stretching from Hanauma Bay to Kailua Beach Park. There have been about 1,000 preventative actions, mostly at Hanauma Bay.
