The Moruya Surf Lifesaving Club Call out team sprung into action after three body boarders got into trouble off the Moruya Breakwall on Monday afternoon (May 13).

One washed hundreds of metres out to sea and was found off the headland by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter before being winched to safety.

The other two boarders were found and safely scrambled onto the breakwall.

The Moruya Surf Club IRB (inflatable rescue boat) crew of Brad and Paul were quick to respond.

“They were in the water 15 minutes after receiving the call out and launched off our beach and around into rivermout,” A spokesperson from the Moruya Surf Lifesaving Club said.

“We are glad everyone is ok.”
