LOST! : on Vieux Boucau Beach, France, on 2013-08-02

On Sept 10th, we received this message from Simon S.:

“Hi! I lost my GoPro Hero2 Camera on the shore of beach Vieux Boucau (France) in city Vieux Boucau during a surflesson. I hab it mounted on the Headstrap (unfortunately without a floaty backdoor). I turned towards the beach an a big wave wiped it off my head. Since it was low tide and I had the water up to my chest and the ocean was very wild, I hab no chance to catch it. The memory card contains some videos of a busride, myself and my girlfriend, the surfclass warmup and my first attempts to stand up on the surfboard. The board was a pink softboard. I was wearing a black wetsuit. If found, please contact me. Thank you in advance for your help! Simon”

On Sept 9th, we received this message from Mahalo Taylor T.:

” I am so bummed I list my GoPro3 camera. I was catching some waves at Kailua beach when this wave came and knocked my board out of my hands. When I went to retrieve my board my gopro disappeared. I died a little inside. I have some pictures and vids on it. I wore a black, yellow and white bikini with a blue body glove board. I know it was stupid of me to not attach a floater. I would be very greatful if anybody could find it and return to me.

LOST! : Cancun, February 16, 2012, deep dive.

Jayne from Quebec, Canada wrote us this:

“I am writing this email in the remote hope that someone will find my husband’s dive camera that he lost on February 16, 2012 when he was diving off Cancun.
It is a Go Pro and had a black head strap attached at the time.
There might be footage of someone placing a dive tank on the bottom of the ocean as he was doing his deep diver course.
If anyone finds it we would be so appreciative to hear from you.

LOST! : “Tom Thumb”, Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia

Richard sent us this:

“I lost my GoPro while rock climbing on the route “Tom Thumb” in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia.

It came off my head at the top of the 5th pitch on Sun 25 March, it likely caught in bushes on one of the next two ledges down. We were running out of daylight so didn’t have time to abseil to look for it. I returned last weekend (29 April) but didn’t find it.

I’m more upset about the SD card than the GoPro, it had footage from Bjelke’s Mind canyon the day before as well as the Tom Thumb climb and it was recording when it slipped off my helmet.

Thanks, Rich.”

If you found it, drop us a message, we’ll try to help Richard at least to get this card back!

FOUND! : Mission Bay area of San Diego

Ken found a go pro while diving in the Mission Bay area of San Diego on 3-3-12.
He sent us the following text:

“By the looks of the barnacles and corrosion on the camera I could tell it had been down there for quite a while.
I took it home and pried it open only to discover salt water had gotten into the camera and had caused partial rusting.
Since it was already water damaged, I rinsed it with fresh water, pulled the memory card and battery, then put it all in a bag of rice.
After 2 days I viewed, to my surprise that the card was still good, footage of two Spanish-speaking surfers possibly of Puerto Rican descent (there was a Puerto Rico decal on his surfboard).
The date on the videos say 2009!?
After some messing around with it I got the camera to re-charge and WORK!!
I can’t believe it. If this site ever allows for video upload I’ll do it. I’d love to reunite this camera to it’s owner.

If you think that you are the owner of this found GoPro, feel free to drop us a message! We’ll pass it to Ken. Let’s hope to reunite the Camera with its owner!
