A surfboard lost in Tasmania in 2017 has been found in northern Queensland (it was actually found in 2018, but it has only now its made its way back to its original owner).
The owner lost it when taking on a 16 metre (52 foot) wave off the south of Tasmania. Apparently he joked it must have crashed on the rocks in New Zealand. Not quite, lol.
Through a remarkable series of coincidences, this year the owner talked to someone else in teh surfing community who talked to someone else… and they knew a family who had pulled a bright green surfboard out of the waters in far north Queensland, covered in barnacles, and hung it on their wall.
Surfboard and owner are now being reunited.
Have you ever had something you’ve been reunited with you thought lost forever?
