A lifeboat crew was launched to search the area following reports that a surfboard had been spotted.
The RNLI Southwold Lifeboat launched about 12.30pm on Saturday, August 18 after a surfboard had reportedly been sighted two-and-a-half miles east of Easton Broad.
However the search was to no unveil and nothing was found.
A post on the RNLI Southwold Lifeboat Station Facebook page said: 'We were launched today at 12.30pm to reports of sighting of a surfboard and to conduct a search in the area to locate the board, which was spotted by a passing yacht.
'Sadly they lost sight of this so an expanding box search was conducted at the last known position - again with nothing found. The lifeboat was released to return to station with nothing found.'
