What would you do if your favorite thing went missing? We might be mourning and try to look for the thing if it’s possible. We would really hope that we can find it again.
But what if you lost the thing on the ocean? It will be impossible for you to make an effort to find it. However, nothing is impossible in this world.
A man from Hawaii, Doug Falter is a big wave surfer. One day, he lost his surfboard that was custom shaped for him during a wipeout in Hawaii. He was certain that he couldn’t find the surfboard anymore.
Surprisingly, after more than two years, he was alerted about his surfboard was found near the remote island of Sarangani in the Philippines. That was about 8,000 kilometers away from where it went missing. Falter was alerted from the social media where he found the picture of a surfer, Giovanne Branzuela holding the surfboard.
According to Branzuela, he bought the surfboard from his neighbor for $40. Before that, the surfboard was found by fishermen who were on the sea and sold it to his neighbor. It was seen floating on the sea in August 2018 which six months after Falter lost it.
Falter said that the surfboard was his first custom big wave surfboard-shaped specifically for him. He wanted to give Branzuela a beginner surfboard and teach him how to surf. Branzuela in return was glad to give it back to the real owner.
