A spokesman said the lifeboat service was notified by the coastguard at around 4pm after receiving reports of a kite surfer in distress due to a broken harness,
The crew was able to locate the surfer as their brightly-coloured kite was clearly visible.
Crew members brought the surfer back to shore safely and handed them over to be treated by the coastguard.
