Ventura Pier: hard as a rock

A 43-year-old kitesurfer was rescued by the US State lifeguards in the Ventura Pier, California.

Strong winds blew the man and his gear towards the pier.

Although he suffered injuries in his hand, he refused medical assistance onshore.

The Channel Islands of California are often exposed to gale winds and tricky ocean currents.
