Canadian Reunited with Camera Lost off the Outer Banks
(Outer Banks, N.C.) A Saskatchewan man has been reunited with his digital camera 10 months after a wave knocked it off his stand-up paddleboard and into the Atlantic Ocean. Zach Wilson, an adventure sports enthusiast and film-maker was paddle-boarding off North Carolina's Outer Banks in May of last year with a friend, when his GoPro digital camera went missing. "We were actually done for the evening, just coming in to the beach and a foot-high wave maybe, it was tiny, knocked it off the board," Wilson told CTV's Canada AM. "I think I had it mounted not quite correctly, and it was gone right away." Wilson and his friend tried to find the camera, but were unsuccessful and eventually gave it up to the ocean, accepting that it was gone for good. Ten months later, on Feb. 28, he got an unexpected surprise when the friend he was with at the time spotted what he thought was an image of Wilson, posted online. "He was like 'you need to check out REAL Watersports' Facebook page...I think your GoPro washed up on shore,'" Wilson said.
