How to post a found board in OBX

Postby kassak » Fri Apr 28, 2017 1:20 am

I am down in Hattteras for the week and found a board on a downwinder. Anyone know a good way to try to find the owner? No name or serial # for the board.

I'd suggest leaving your name & number with the major kite schools on the island (depending on where you found the board, try Kitty Hawk Kites, REAL, Ocean Air, etc.). A lot of people check with those schools to see if someone found or turned in a lost board.

Also, post your message in the Lost and Found section of this Forum.

Does the board look like it's been in the elements for awhile? A buddy lost a Duuk brand light wind board on a downwinder from Planet to Salvo last April. Has a dog taking a crap for a logo.

He's there right now until Saturday.

How is the board? Faded at all from sun and salt? Or still looks new?

Talking about dogs, I have a circular dog tag with my telephone number engraved on it and two holes drilled at opposite sides attached with a cable tie/zip tie to the outside of a strap (not around the strap of course).
