Wow

Any more details? And any particular reason why?

No idea why, could have easily killed me if I couldn't swim. Couple of local teenagers, bored or jealous (I had a Snapper on the board from earlier in the day and they struck out)? I'd be guessing. They asked if I could come over to shine my head torch on something in the water and one distracted me while the other pushed me in from behind. Didn't steal any of My gear. Cops didn't find anything or anyone, having rocked up 40min later.

I had a good rant to Mr. Plod while standing in a towel shivering my ass off. Filed a report and never got a follow-up

Perhaps they mistook you for a bream fisherman?
