RNLI Rescue board, Downhill
Royal National Lifeboat Institution rescue board on Downhill Strand. The RNLI provides a full lifeguard service on Downhill Strand during the busy summer season and have a variety of equipment at their disposal. The rescue board is described on their website as "Taking its origin from a malibu surfboard, the rescue board is a lifeguard’s primary rescue tool. Most rescues are carried out within 100m of the shore and this can be the quickest to respond in most conditions. Designed to cope with large surf it is possible to surf in with casualty on board."
