    Found on eBay! best spark 134 green from Hastings beach

    I messaged a guy on eBay about this board as it had no pics and he said it washed up whilst he was fishing. His location is Hastings so I guess it's Hastings/St leonards area it was found/lost. Item number 140654443455

    Hope this reunites someone with their board.

    told me the same, doesn't know how old it is and can't post pictures because his camera is broken but welcome to inspect it.

    I phoned the local kiting shop.. Their going to ask around. With any luck someone will have their board back. I haven't told the guy how massively out of line it is to be profiting off of someone's miss fortune because I dont want him to remove the listing and it be gone for good.

    It don't take much savvy to inform the coast guard or local kiting shop it's been found.

    What local shop did you inform? We don't have one in our area ...

    I'll have a word if I head down the beach, see if any of the guys know anyone to have lost one here ...

    Well I say kiting shop its Ten past two windsurfing, which I know from previous they sell bits and pieces of kiting gear. Anyway the guy seemed to know alot of the local kite surfers and said he would spread the word.

    No update then, i noticed the listing ended before it was due so he's either sold it for an out of ebay sale or hopefully the owner has got hold of him.

    it doesn't take much savvy to inform coastguards and shops if you lost a board, could save a search, and then people would know whose board it is if it turns up. maybe it was stolen and not lost, who knows?

    Who ever had the board lost/stolen might of reported missing/stolen.. Who knows, regardless I don't think it should end up on eBay straight after it's found if that is the case. The board has a leash attachment so I find it hard to believe it was found washed up.
