Miracle – Surfers found clinging to surfboard after 36 hours

Published

on

In a remarkable turn of events, the four Australian surfers who went missing after their boat failed to return to an Indonesian island have been located alive off the coast of an exclusive resort on private Pinang Island in Aceh.

The group, identified as Elliot Foote, Steph Weisse, Will Teagle, and Jordan Short, were discovered clinging to their surfboards, having spent 36 hours in treacherous waters.

The group of friends was part of a larger party of 12 Australians who embarked on a journey from Nias Island, located off the western coast of Sumatra, towards Aceh’s Banyak Islands.

The voyage took a dangerous turn as they encountered unfavorable weather conditions during the trip. While the second boat managed to reach shore safely, the four Australians along with crew members were reported missing, sparking a widespread search and rescue operation.

The ordeal came to an end when the missing surfers were spotted floating on their surfboards by Grant Richardson, an Australian man sailing his yacht named Sea Mi Amor. He spent the night tirelessly searching for the group and managed to locate them after nearly two days at sea. The families of the surfers expressed immense relief upon receiving the news of their survival.

Peter Foote, father of Elliot Foote, shared his emotions with the media, stating that the friends were “well” and their families were “stoked.” Elliot Foote himself sent a text message to his father confirming his rescue, saying, “I am alive, safe now, love you. Chat later.”

Nightmare mission

The rescue mission unfolded as a dramatic saga, with Steph Weisse being the first to be found, followed shortly by Jordan Short and Will Teagle. Elliot Foote was located later, potentially after attempting to paddle to a nearby island in search of help.

The bond between the group of friends was evident throughout the ordeal, as they supported one another during their time at sea. While the incident was characterized by some as “freak luck,” the families were relieved that the situation ended on a positive note.

As the news spread, well-wishes and relief poured in for the missing surfers, and Mr. Foote even expressed his desire for his son to continue enjoying his holiday if the surf conditions remained favorable.

Despite the challenges posed by poor weather and the absence of GPS on their vessel, the search and rescue operation continued until its successful conclusion. While the rescued surfers are in good spirits, there is still one Indonesian crew member unaccounted for.

The incident shed light on the risks associated with the journey from Nias to Pinang, emphasizing the importance of safety precautions in such conditions. The Banyak Islands are renowned among surfers for their impressive waves, and the Pinang Resort, where the group was headed, markets itself as an exclusive surf camp.
