Surfer's body found in waters off Crunchy Point in Point Leo

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 August, 2014 - A man has died while surfing off Melbourne’s Mornington Peninsula on Saturday. Police said a Mt Martha man, aged in his 40s, was found unconscious on the beach just before 3pm. He had been surfing in waters off Crunchy Point in Point Leo.

Ambulance Victoria spokesman Ray Rowe said bystanders pulled the man from shallow waters. ‘‘They brought him in and did attempt to resuscitate him until the arrival of our paramedics who continued for a while, but unfortunately he was deceased at the scene.’’

Life Saving Victoria spokesman Paul Shannon said although unaware of the circumstances surrounding the man’s death, the tragedy served as a timely reminder for people to surf with someone else. Life Saving Victoria spokesman Paul Shannon said although unaware of the circumstances surrounding the man’s death, the tragedy served as a timely reminder for people to surf with someone else. ‘‘Always go with somebody else,’’ he said. 

‘‘Be conscious of your own ability.‘‘ You need to make sure that you're surfing in conditions that you feel comfortable in and, of course, when you're in the ocean there’s always going to be risk with regards to surfboards which are quite hard: you can always be hit.’’
