Nine months ago, Zach Wilson was paddleboarding near Rodanthe on Hatteras Island and lost his GoPro camera. As fate would have it, a vacationer found the scratched case during a walk on the beach in Avon just last week. “I had no clue what it was. I just thought it came from a boat or something because of the suction device that was on the waterproof case,” Rick Spink, of Virginia Beach said.
The cover was protecting a damaged camera that held a photo card with nearly 1,000 pictures of a paddle-board rider. Spink sent one of the images to REAL Watersports. The Hatteras Island surf shop put the photo on its Facebook page.
A friend contacted Zach and told him to check REAL Water Sports Facebook page as he was 99 percent sure it was pictures of him on his stand-up paddle board. Zach Wilson identified his photo and contacted Spink. The camera is now in the mail and on its way to Zach in Canada.
