Lost Kiteboard - Camber Sands UK

Postby Lib337 » Sun Aug 02, 2020 12:30 pm

Hi

I lost my kitesurf board in the sea whilst at cambersands, UK yesterday afternoon (sat 1 Aug).
It is a mainly yellow rrd placebo twintip and looks like this https://images.app.goo.gl/4iLXJUoJhHiKxros5. It has a black the kitesurf centre sticker.

Posting on the amazing chance anyone here happens to find it - I would be really grateful
Was my first time using the board :oops:

Thanks!

Try the Camber kiters facebook group, I'll keep my ear to the ground, it'll turn up.

From personal experience boards will usually end up further down the beach (East) at Camber.
I lost my board one day and found it about 40 minutes later along way down the beach.

A friend also lost his board and despite an extensive search we couldn’t find it.
Returned to the car park to find his board next to his car!
He had put his car registration number on the board as well as a contact telephone number.
There was also message on his phone from the board finder as well.
Hope you find your board.
