maybe contact the local police of the surf break, local surf shops. have them let the lifeguards know. those are the dudes who could get the word out and hopefully re-unite a man with his property. I find it so cool that you're going out of your way for this guy, it's nice to know there's still good people out there.
I'm still in the keys slowwideturn so its kind of hard. I joined 2nd light forum last night but I have to get to my email for password. Doing this from my phone for now. Monday I will make a more solid attempt. I figured the guy would post a lost board thread on the 2nd light forum and this would have been done by now. Oh well, back to lobsterimg for now.
