KITESURFERS have launched a petition to improve beach safety after the deaths of two young surfers in Tarifa.
Tereza Jelinkova and an unnamed 30-year-old German drowned off Los Lances beach on Sunday after getting into trouble at sea.
Another young man had to be resuscitated on the beach.
Reports suggest the three kitesurfers were unable to get out of the water after their lines got tangled.
So far over 1,000 people have signed the petition demanding Tarifa town hall installs permanent all-year watch towers and first-aid facilities at the beach.
Ania Kondera, a friend of Teresa, posted on Facebook: “Kitesurfing brings millions into the economy. Safety is not much to ask for in return.”
