Surfers have plucked a man from the water after his tinny overturned at Evans Head early this morning.
Northern Rivers Marine Rescue acting controller John Murray said there was a heavy swell in the area this morning.
‘He’s hit a rather large wave and overturned. Luckily there were some local borad riders there to pull him out of the water, he told ABC.
Mr Murray said the man was ‘safe and unharmed’, adding his boat had been retrieved by a local fisherman.
