A member of the public was the first to spot the man in the water.

They alerted the lifeguards who brought him to shore to commence CPR.

"He was surfing at the time and it's believed he suffered a heart attack," Mr Purchas said.

A Department of Community Safety spokeswoman said paramedics responded to a man on the beach who was unconscious and not breathing.
