Kite was on lawn post session Sunday 8/20 with camera on lines. Not there after he got out of his wetsuit. Hoping it was an honest mistake. If so, PM me.

Hood river clan is leaving for the season along with people's gear. Good times !! Never an honest mistake when you take people's stuff. Take the time or care to make sure it's yours !!

I have heard of more stories of "lost gear" this year then any other. As more people get into kiting the more things change. People who maybe really can't afford kiting want to kite. Word to the wise don't leave anything of value laying around. Very Happy

Do you have the serial #, maybe on the original invoice/purchase order depending on where you picked it up?

While I'm sure the "look at the video approach" will more than suffice...

According to this article GoPro embeds the serial number of the camera in their raw videos.

You could simply pull up some of your old videos to get your serial number.

One thing I always do with my GoPro (assuming losing it, not theft) is to have a text file on the SD card that I name please_read_if_found.txt where I have my contact details. Fortunately didn't lose my GoPro yet, but I figured that it may help in the future (like a phone number sharpie'd on the board).
