Lifeguard to the rescue of kayaker

A MAN was seen with a kayak 700m off Main Beach waving his arms for help off Woolgoolga Headland by onlookers.

When pulling in his anchor the kayak capsized and filled with water making it near impossible to maneuver and difficult to get back to shore.

Marine Rescue and the local lifeguard service were notified.

Lifeguard Daley Bear paddled out to the man to provide assistance.

Daley said the man was very thankful, calm and exhausted when he arrived out to him.

He then towed the man and kayak back into the headland taking around twenty minutes.

The water was emptied from the kayak and the man is safe and well.
