How Did Pierre Agnes went missing?
On January 30, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. Agnes went for a fishing trip. He then told maritime authorities that because of thick fog he would return late. He was alone on the boat and intended to do some fishing at Capbreton, located at the mouth of the Boudigau and Bourret rivers. This area is known for dangerous waves.
By early afternoon, his family and friends failed to contact him and an alert was announced on that area. The authorities have deployed boats and helicopters off the coast to search for Pierre Agnes. After some time the boat was founded upside-down on a remote beach at Soorts-Hossegor.
Statement released by Boardriders said, “The Boardriders family and entire surfing world are devastated by this news. We are concentrating on working with the local authorities on the search and rescue effort and supporting Pierre’s family.”
