Laura Peters's Bio

I have been metal detecting for over 20 years and I love to help people find their lost items. I enjoy keeping the beach clean and removing hazardous metal trash too. I share my stories and special finds on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/geekybeach/) and on my website (https://thegeekybeach.com ).

Metal detecting is a passion for me and I even teach lessons to beginners. I use high-quality metal detecting equipment and tools, and I am dedicated to helping you find your treasure so it doesn't go to someone else!
