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!
