This was a Kite surfer(Gray Robinson from Saltspring Island) on Chesterman’s beach 1/2 hour before all the trouble began.
It was very windy out and he got into trouble out in the middle of the Bay. He couldn’t get the Kite back into the air and was heading for the rocks. At this point I didn’t know that & wasn’t sure if he needed help or not. I decided to go down to the end of Chesterman’s & up onto the rocks to get a better vantage point so that I could see if this guy really did need help or not.
The Coast Guard was about to come onto the scene and thats when it got seriously dangerous.
