News article ---> Kite surfer missing in Sandy Hook Bay after strings tangle with motorboat

"According to the Coast Guard, the surfer went missing around 5:30 p.m. Friday after the surfer's strings became entangled with a nearby motorboat and went underwater near Horseshoe Cove in Gateway National Park."

"The boater says he saw an unconscious man attached to a kite in harness, but as he was trying to pull the surfer from the water, a gust of wind pulled the kite line from his hands and he lost sight of the man."

Doesn't sound hopeful.

ATB,
Sam

Search suspended. Kind of hard to see how a kitesurfing kite could just disappear.

Sounds like he was unconscious when the boater tried to save him, then a gust blew him away. Sad story; thoughts and prayers are with his family.
