Kiter pulls lady kiter free from rocks in high surf!
 



Patrick Rebstock pulls off an impressive rescue in dangerous conditions both for himself and the downed kiter. Patrick must be a pretty strong guy too.
The kiter he rescued had to have been dragging like crazy as he ripped through the waves into shore. He consciously moved very fast to keep
both of them as far from the rocks getting slammed by the waves as possible before he could effect the tow to safety. More impressive,
Patrick likely pulled off this save on a strapless surfboard! This happened at Hollister Ranch, Santa Barbara on Sunday, April 1, 2012.
John Doe and a few other kiters were out and fortunately John captured this great clip!
